"Absolutely Not. It is not" Miss Deleware

I have been unable to get the full quote, but 

suffice to say that "absolutely" is used to 

strengthen the denial, but it's need, itself,

 shows weakness. 

Miss Delaware Teen USA resigns amid sex video claims

    Melissa King, Miss Delaware Teen USA, resigned her crown today after facing questions about an online sex video that claims to star her.
    “I would like to confirm to you that the Miss Delaware Teen USA pageant has received a resignation letter from Miss King’s attorney,” pageant spokeswoman Dara Busch wrote in an e-mail this morning.
    A porn website posted a sex video Monday featuring a woman who looks and sounds like King and claiming it is the teen pageant winner. King, contacted Monday, said she was aware of it, but denied it was her.
    Absolutely not,” she said.It is not.”
    "Absolutely" is added in an attempt to strengthen the denial.  "it is not" does not identify with strength, nor even uses the pronoun, "me."
    Of the porn site’s claim, she said, “There are comments saying this, however, it’s not comments that are true.”
    It is the comments that are not true, rather than the identity.  This is weakening and distancing. 
    King, who was crowned Miss Delaware Teen USA last year, declined to provide her attorney’s name Monday. Pageant officials, however, identified her attorney as J. Gregory Hannigan, out of Hagerstown, Md. He did not immediately return messages.
    An email sent Monday night seeking comment from the website distributing the video was not answered.
    Busch, who is executive vice president and managing director with Rubenstein Public Relations, said the runner-up will take King’s position.
    According to the Miss Delaware Teen USA website, Hailey Lawler of the Newark area is the runner-up. She could not be reached for comment.
    Miss Delaware Teen USA is run by the New York-based Miss Universe Organization. This is not the first time issues have arisen with the organization involving a Delaware contestant. In 2005, Sheena Benton was allowed to remain Miss Delaware USA and compete in the nationally televised pageant after it was learned she had pleaded guilty for drunken driving in 2004.
    And this is certainly not the first time there has been a sex scandal involving a pageant contestant. In 1984, Vanessa Williams gave up her Miss America title after nude photos of her surfaced. Miss America is not associated with the Miss Universe Organization.
    The video alleging King in it, a recording running just over five minutes, starts with an interview on what appears to be a hotel bed.

    It would be great if she would use this opportunity to tell other teens about the choices you make and how they can affect your life.

    Dog team finds scent in search for boy.

    Kim Vallez
    BAYFIELD, Colo. (KRQE) - A team of cadaver dogs working to locate a missing Colorado teen Dylan Redwine has picked up a scent near Vallecito Lake, one of the focal points in the three-month search.

    "We had a couple of hits in that area," said Wendy Kessenger of K9 Forensics. "What we did is we moved it closer to east side of lake where the five branch rivers flow into each on that side and we had many alerts going off there."

    The K9 group from Edgewood has been in the Vallecito area for two weeks. They say while they have gotten scents, they have not found any sign of Dylan.

    Dylan disappeared during a court-ordered visit with his father for Thanksgiving.

    The group will share their findings with the La Plata County Sheriff's Department, which will then decide what to do next.

    K9 Forensics volunteered its services for the search.

    "To give closure to families because on such a huge search like this the funds run out, the manpower of overtime, they can't keep up with it," Kessenger said. "And when they can't make the find, the family is like, 'Well, what next?' They're kind of left hanging."

    The group is expected to search for a couple more days.

    I read the Miss Delaware story yesterday, and it quickly became evident she was lying. I'm glad she was 'caught in the act,' so she cannot enjoy the facade of portraying a wholesome role model while living immorally in secret.

    There is a deeper problem here, and it seems many are blaming the symptom, not the cause.
