Mary Lou is nothing but a housewife turned secretary who was asked to run so Burt could still have his say. She is nothing but a puppet. You can see that in her decisions and her votes. When on her own she states idiotic things which prove if she didn't have Burt she would be nothing. Burt is smart enough to know with the current way we have to vote, single district, that he or his puppets are sure to win, why? Because all the old Jewish people in the district vote right down party lines. They prove all the time that they are uninformed voters.
I still laugh at Mary Lou's suggestion of a hotel in Morikami Park. Like this park is a major tourist draw, or the surrounding area has something tourists come to see. She is a moron, a puppet to another corrupt politician.
