    Congratulations Susan and Tom … Of course us Caribou folks want you to take time off… You truly deserve many years of happiness together …. Life flies by in the blink of an eye… You have worked so hard for us Susan that you not only deserve a honeymoon but also a fantastic vacation and quiet times at the lake. Cheers to you both :)

    •  Definitely, I agree. Being a U.S. Senator is probably very stressful. I think she deserves time off and to get to live a normal life for a few weeks.

      Can you imagine if a CEO was dating one of his staff?

        Bosses date employees all the time, nothing novel there. Besides he is the COO of a consulting firm that worked with Collins on her campaigns. She’s not exactly his boss.

        read the article.  they met when they were both working for Bill Cohen, but only became romantically involved a few years ago.  And while Daffron consulted for her campaign, that is not an employee/employer relationship since consulting is often done independently.

    “Daffron uses the basement apartment of the house, said Collins.”  ha ha ha.  I love how she had to mention this.  God forbid two grown adults sleep in the same bed before they are married.

    Is “consultant” another word for lobbyist?

    Perhaps nuptials on the Pond in Enfield?

    Congratulations!

    I am assuming the primary purpose of this marriage is not procreation and am therefore waiting for the anti same sex marriage contingent to equate its validity with that of a long term loving gay couple as unworthy of the legal benefits conferred upon married couples.  
       

    That being said, Congratulations to the betrothed and best wishes for a life filled with happiness together.

      the union of a man and a woman is normal regardless of age . It is not perverse or deviant but normal.

      • kcjonez

        Exactly.  Just like a committed, loving, same-sex couple.

    what the hell does she need to go to Germany for a security conference for? Who’s paying for this junket…another example of an out of control government..Repeal the Patriot Act and Obama care..I like Susan,but this is another example of waste…shame on you Susan…glad you finally found the love of your life and maybe it’s time to think about retiring and get some new blood in DC

  • Congrats

    All the time & work she has put into representing Maine, and her first response is to fit her wedding around the Senate schedule! Where do we find a few more folks to send to Washington who put MAINE before ME? Here’s hoping for nothing but the very best for them.

    I am worried about the OWS movement and Occupy Bangor activists who might see this wedding as an opportunity to demonstrate outside the church to bring attention to Senator Collins status as a war criminal.

    • pavel

      The article mentions a small private ceremony. It does not mention a church.

    So nice for her.

    If Senator Collins was running in the GOP primary, I think she would be in the lead…!
