We interrupt this brief hiatus for a public emergency broadcast message.

There has been a recent, local sighting of the mythical Chupacabra.

Be on your guard.

(h/t to the Post-Gazette for choosing that particular image to front the story of Jane Orie being indicted for political tsks)

    Did you see the video of this on the evening news yesterday? I mean, wow….Jane Orie, and frankly all of the Orie women, look like raging psychopath nutjobs.

    I’m gonna go with my gut on this one. Guilty.

    I read thru the entire 66 page indictment. It seems pretty damning. Her own staff kept documents and email messages from years earlier because they were afraid this would happen some day and they wanted to protect themselves.

    All I know is that I would not want to cross any of the Ories without serious backup.

    I don’t know anything about these people or their story, but that chick is scary. I would hate to be the kid that left spots on the mirror in her house.

    Looks like she has a Dalmation coat in her closet.

    One thing’s for sure after seeing the news video, these reality show producers should consider a show centered around the Orie clan because I bet there’s major DRAMA every day!

    Come to think of it, since MTV is killing “The Hills”, they could replace it with “The North Hills”…

    So here’s me, just about to check into the site to thank you for leaving us a fine image of hotness to help us get through your hiatus and bam! Well, my thanks is now RESCINDED! Hope you’re happy.

    So now we get more lawsuits and counter-suits while the business of the people goes unattended in Harrisburg. Sigh.

    Fair is fair — that photo is from the Trib’s web site. The PG had the four Orie sisters surrounding their brother.

    Everything about this picture is awesome. From the crazy hair to the crooked white teeth to the chopped bangs to the god-awful makeup. There has to be a mugshot somewhere, right??

    Even their brother has that “bang” hairdo. Must have one heck of a BOGO at their stylist.

    I instantly thought of the burgh blog when I saw the pics in the paper.

    Entire family appears, to the untrained eye, to have been thoroughly and (with religious fervor) regularly beaten with an ugly stick. Early and often. That shit don’t wash off in the shower, either.

    Good lord, that woman simply looks NASTY. Beat with a fugly stick then made to eat said stick.

    “What Not to Wear” should convene a Grand Jury on this woman and bring charges of crimes against style.

    @magnus patris- I was actually thinking she looks like an evil reptile leader in V.

    I have always thought she and her sisters’ hair, nails and makeup deserved their own indictment. This here ain’t Texas, girls.

    I just want to publicly apologize for blindly voting for this crazy chick. Had I any idea what I was doing I would have run far, far, far in the other direction.

    Lesson learned.

    That monster is also known as “The Republican Representative From Pittsburgh” – which means that all the republicans in the Pennsylvania Senate look to her for advice about what to do about Pittsburgh. And republicans outnumber democrats.

    See – its not just my fault we’re fucked!

    Great picture. And the posts are hilarious. This family needs a serious makeover.

    The Orie family must be voted out and off the public dole. But couldn’t the same be said for the Zapalla family? Both families are parasites who rape the tax payer for their own benefit. Neither has any interest in public service.

    Not living in the Burgh, I don’t know who this person is, but she sure as hell scares the you know what out of me. I would definitely avoid irritating her in any way.

    hee hee….saw this yesterday in the paper and cracked up – what a great picture to go along with the story of her indictment. She’s scary.

    She has a serious resemblance to an older Linda Blair, but with the same Pazuzu inside.

    Also: @naten53 I can’t believe someone else remembers the “Che Banner”! :) How great.

    I thought that the photo of Jane Orie was scary until I looked at the photo of the whole family from the Post-Gazette — YIKES!

  41. Steverino
    April 12, 2010 8:19 am

    When this piece aired on TV, all I saw was a bunch of Orie hair blowing all over the place! I didn’t know there were that many of them, all with the same dyed hair, way too long for their ages, and gobs and gobs of drug store makeup. Can’t someone do a charity makeover for these poor girls?

  42. efw_west
    April 12, 2010 9:53 am

    kudos to the PG for calling out Jane’s brother and the ethnic slur he used when referring to the Zappalla’s. Hope Jane and the rest of the Orie’s crashe & burns on this one.

    why were they all wearing the same tan trench coat in their latest court appearance? freaky!
