Nurse Kaci Hickox V. Chris Christie and the Republicans Science Deniers!

People don’t understand but I need attention and if being up here on the bridge in my Birthday Suit will help me, then damn it, I will just sit here. It looks likes locking-up the Nurse may have back-fired. Governor Como deceived me, he said he will stick with me but then Obama pressured him and he caved. What a fool I am.


FORT KENT, Maine — A nurse who was confined against her will at a New Jersey hospital after returning from West Africa where she treated Ebola patients said Wednesday that she’s prepared to go to court if the state of Maine tries to quarantine her. However, Maine’s governor said the state will “seek legal authority to enforce the quarantine” on Kaci Hickox.


Governor Paul R. LePage issued a statement saying state officials “are very concerned about her safety and health and that of the community” and said that Maine State Police will monitor the residence in Fort Kent where Hickox is staying.


“Upon learning the health care worker intends to defy the protocols, the Office of the Governor has been working collaboratively with the State health officials within the Department of Health and Human Services to seek legal authority to enforce the quarantine,” the statement said.


Meanwhile, Hickox spoke to NBC’s “Today” show and ABC’s “Good Morning America” from Fort Kent, where her boyfriend is a senior nursing student.


She said she has so far abided by the state’s voluntary quarantine. She had no contact with anyone Tuesday and will have no human contact again Wednesday, she said.

“I don’t plan on sticking to the guidelines,” Hickox said on “Today.” ”I remain appalled by these home quarantine policies that have been forced upon me even though I am in perfectly good health.”


Her lawyer told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Hickox isn’t willing to cooperate further unless the state lifts “all or most of the restrictions.”
