If any journalist was going to dig through the pages and pages of legal documents that were released in the Orie sisters’ indictment and find some really amazing, jaw-dropping, and downright LOL-worthy revelations, it was going to be Dennis Roddy.
So what did he find? Hold on to your chins, Burghers.
State Sen. Jane Clare Orie and her sister state Supreme Court Justice Joan Orie Melvin turned to a clairvoyant to foretell the outcome of their effort to head off a grand jury investigation that ultimately snared the senator.
That’s right. They went to a psychic/seer/mojojujuvoodoo lady to find out if they were going to be charged with crimes.
It gets better!
According to sources close to the case, the sisters sought advice from Carolann Sano of Philadelphia, a self-described “clairaudient,” who says she can channel messages from spirit guides — she refers to them as angels. Ms. Sano says that when she receives a question from a client, she speaks it aloud and hears the answer whispered into her right ear.
How freaky would it be if one day she heard the answer in her left ear?! Shudder.
The first reference to a clairvoyant crops up in a text message obtained by prosecutors, sent by Jamie Pavlot, at that time the senator’s chief of staff, just hours after a University of Pittsburgh intern abruptly resigned to protest what she said was political work on state time at the senator’s office.
The resignation set off a flurry of activity. According to documents presented by prosecutors, at 12:16 p.m. Oct. 30, according to a search warrant affidavit, Ms. Pavlot sent a text message to Ms. Orie: “Can I call the angel ladies?”
Five minutes later, a text reply came from Sen. Orie’s telephone: “Yes … jamie just be smart and careful … you can never let your guard down.”
“You can never let your guard down.” Does that mean the staff member went to the Angel Lady all, “Yeah, would you ask the angels if the Ories are going to be charged with crimes? I’m, uh, asking for a friend.”
Regardless, the Ories are going to trial and I Googled their Angel Lady:
I refer to “them” or the energies that provide these messages as Angels. Some refer to “them” as spirit guides. In any case, it is a more highly evolved intellect than humans, serving God, the universe, mankind. but it is not God. “They” are not 100% correct all the time – cannot be – only God is. These energies exist where there is no time, thus, timing can be delayed.
Boo to that! If I’m asking an angel of God a question, the angel better know what he’s talking about.
I work with my angels and guides, not yours and I work within the White Light. Always ask for the White Light of love and highest good to surround you, eliminating the possibility of negative energies attempting to confuse or discourage either of us during a session.
I saw White Light capitalized and for some reason I thought of White Snake and then my brain went to the Tawny Kitaen straddling the hood of a car video, except Tawny Kitaen was Jane Orie and now I’m all confused, disturbed and want to weep in the shower.
Note: I don’t ask about the sex of an unborn child
Well, I call freaking shenanigans on this one. We can ask the Angel Lady if our crush will call. We can ask her if we’re going to get a new job. We can ask her anything. But we can’t ask her about the sex of our unborn child. I’m guessing because she’ll only be right 50% of the time.
Here’s her disclaimer:
DISCLAIMER: The information & advice given in & through messages you receive is to be treated for entertainment purposes only.
Well, if that’s all it is then the Ories should come to me and I’d go all Psych on them for the low low price of $100 a session.
[Puts finger to temple and closes eyes] If late-80s flight attendant is the look you’re going for, well done. Also, you’re going to be tried, you’re going to be found guilty, and you’re not going to be able to get manicures in jail. I’m no angel. Welcome to hell.
Do you have any idea how badly I want to call the Angel Lady and ask, “Will I ever find my horse?”
And then when she says, “No. But don’t worry, your horse is fine and happy where it is.”
I’ll be all, “BUSTED! I don’t have a horse.”
Also, you know what Zappala is thinking in that picture up there, don’t you?
