Hagan lands Harvard fellowship

Posted January 15, 2015

Kay Hagan addresses her supporters after the election on Nov. 4, 2014.

— Former U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan is trading Capitol Hill for Beacon Hill, spending the next few months at Harvard University as a fellow at the school's John F. Kennedy School of Government.

Hagan, who lost her bid for re-election to Republican Sen. Thom Tillis, is one of five fellows for the spring semester at the Kennedy School's Institute of Politics. The others are Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, former New York City Councilwoman Christine Quinn, Time magazine Washington correspondent Jay Newton-Small and Matt Lira, former deputy executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

“The Institute’s Spring Fellows represent the strong impact dedicated practitioners can have throughout politics and public service,” Institute of Politics Director Maggie Williams said in a statement. “We look forward to welcoming this accomplished group and are confident they will guide and support our students as they explore the many avenues to political engagement and public service.”

Former North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue also served as a Harvard fellow after she left office two years ago.

    And like her tenure as Senator not a single person at Harvard will ever see or hear her.

    Harvard will take any socialist they can get.

    After getting $400k kickback from stimulus, Kay gets $1450 mo. pension + free health ins. for life. Corrupt?

    Hagan was loaded long before she ever got near DC. She hails from a wealthy family in Florida and spent much of her professional life prior to politics as a banking executive.

    Harvard will be glad to accept any socialist to its staff.

    And Hagan's husband can go back to his country club so everyone is happy.

    At least we an be fairly sure Hagan is actually at Harvard where she says she is, unlike Tillis who inflated his resume claiming that he attended school at the University of Maryland. Only after being busted on it did he admit it was the University of Maryland University College - a long-distance education college. Don't look for straight talk out of, or respect for NC because of, him.

    Dumplin also went to Harvard after leaving the Governor's Mansion.

    Bev had said that we should postpone the elections until Obama had a chance to make things right.

    So they invited they could study her!

    She earned this liberal payback. They all go to DC and come out with great riches and opportunities in return for a votes.
