For the first time in Turtleboy history a blog we published has prompted a recall election of an elected official:
An effort is underway to recall a school committee member over a Facebook post that some feel disparaged an elderly veteran. The target is school committee member Kelly Cobb-Lemire, who was elected to a four-year term on the committee last November and is a longtime community volunteer. Her social media post was about a food delivery she made for a local food pantry last month.
“Yesterday, I made a food pantry delivery to a gentleman I don’t normally deliver to,” Cobb-Lemire posted on her private Facebook page. “He had a Veterans for Trump sign in his window and then he came out with an NRA tshirt on. So wishing I believed in getting rewards in some afterlife.”
The text was followed by a smiley face emoji wearing a halo. The post became the basis for an entry on the website Turtleboy Sports under a headline that said Cobb-Lemire “openly mocks needy veteran.” The post generated off-color comments and some that Cobb-Lemire said were threatening. Turtleboy’s post was shared several times on other local Facebook pages, where it sparked further debate and some moderator’s removed the repost. In a statement to The Patriot Ledger, Cobb-Lemire apologized for the comments in the post, noting that she is the daughter of a Marine who served during the Korean War, the niece of two soldiers who served in Vietnam and the sister of a retired U.S. Navy officer.
“Although there was no malicious intent on my part, I understand how it could be interpreted as disrespectful, and I take full responsibility for any pain my words may have caused. I am truly sorry if any veterans felt I was disrespecting them. That was never my intention, and I apologize,” she wrote. “For anyone to say I am anti-veteran is an outright lie.”
Kimberly Sacco said she has the 400 signatures on a petition needed to launch a recall effort against Cobb-Lemire. Sacco feels the comments in the post disqualify her from serving on the school committee.
“Based on the irreparable disrespect for our veterans, what would she do to our children?” Sacco asked.
During a public comment portion of Monday night’s remote school committee meeting, Sacco called on Cobb-Lemire to resign and save the town the thousands of dollars a special election would cost. Cobb-Lemire did not respond. Sacco said she intends to file the petition signatures with Town Clerk James Casey as soon as Thursday. If certified, the signatures would trigger the second step in the recall process established by the town charter, where organizers would have to collect the signatures of approximately 2,700 registered voters, or 10 percent of the total number eligible for the last town election, in three weeks to force a recall election. The town council would set the date for the election, where a majority of voters would decide if Cobb-Lemire should be removed from office.
I love when the mainstream media is begrudgingly forced to recognize our existence. Kind of hard not to since Kelly issued a press release on Facebook blaming a blog for screenshotting her horrible comments, before removing the post in shame.
The fact that this idiot is talking about relatives that served in Korea shows that she completely misses the point. No one says she disrespects all veterans. The issue is she publicly shit on someone she was supposed to be helping, mocked him for being needy, did so entirely because of his politics, and then sat back and did nothing as all her friends shit on the guy. She didn’t correct any of these people, and even commented on some of them.
She also shared confidential health information about the guy.
Just to be a cunt.
Now the prize patrol is defending her honor in the comments and blaming Turtleboy for literally just screenshotting the things she posted in a blog.
Intentionally misread her post? She admitted she fucked up, and her “apology” wasn’t really an apology so much as it was whining about Turtleboy for exposing her.
She delivered the veteran food, “not withstanding his political beliefs.”
As if that was her decision to make.
It was amazing how many people blamed Turtleboy for this.
I literally just screenshotted things she said. That’s it.
Others are whining about “cancel culture.”
Newsflash – democracy isn’t cancel culture. Her ass is being recalled because she’s horrible, and she only got the seat in the first place because no one ran against her.
The amount of people who think Facebook is their personal diary never ceases to amaze me either. According to some, “Facebook is not reality” and Kelly was just using her “inside voice.”
Except it is reality, and this is who she is, and her ass is being recalled and hopefully added to the Turtleboy graveyard.

KCL has got to go. So does that McMullin bag o doosh.
Smug bitch should have been shunned for her faux outrage over a blue line flag previous to this incident.
I still want to know if that Fournier is the one from Squantum. I would enjoy the opportunity to engage in a private conversation with him. Another smug jagoff.
Boo hoo, woe is me!
Yeah, zero fucks given, hon.
Sorry not sorry.
I’m a scabbed over pus nodule, attached to a pus filled nobody. Reddem yourself Kum Sacco
I don’t know who Kimberly Sacco is, but since she’s leading the recall, consider me a FAN!
I had a dad serve in WW2, as well as his two brothers. My mom’s brother served in Korea. I guess I have enough cred too, to mistreat a Trump loving, old veteran. I never realized it would come in handy if I go wacky on facebook! Awesome, dude!
Thank you TB for bringing this out. Braintree resident, have kids in the school system. Her comments were inexcusable. I served, and I respect those that have.
If Kelly cares about her community, she needs to step down now. Very glad to hear the effort to remove her is under way. Restores some faith.
Go woke go broke baby!
Kelly inexplicably brought abortion into the FB post. Why? What does that have to do with it? Kelly is obviously obsessed with abortion and vilifying people who are pro-life.
That tells me she had at least one abortion and will spend the rest of her life justifying it to ease her conscience.
Kelly, you need to get past this. Try Rachel’s Vineyard, it can help you:
Rachel’s Vineyard is a safe place to renew, rebuild and redeem hearts broken by abortion. Weekend retreats offer you a supportive, confidential and non-judgmental environment where women and men can express, release and reconcile painful post-abortive emotions to begin the process of restoration, renewal and healing.
OMG my exact thought when I read that response. “Babies” in quotations… because she wants to believe that three months after the semen has fertilized her egg calling it a “baby” is just silly. She would never kill a “baby.” She just wants women to be able to have control over their bodies. The Republicans call them “babies.” She calls it “her choice to control her body.”
Next time you find out a woman is pregnant, don’t congratulate her. It’s not a “baby” if she doesn’t want it.
Great work TB and Kim Sacco. Volunteering at a food pantry, BLM protests, relatives in the military, no malicious intent, etc….. Save it douche pig. You insulted a hero veteran bc of a sign and tee shirt, which didn’t match your agenda. You showed your true colors. I would wish COVID on you during the SCAMDEMIC but instead am rooting for an asteroid to strike your vehicle on your way to the polls to recall your pathetic useless ass.
The Ego of these Tone Deaf Liberals
Classic Narcissist – has zero idea what really the issue is with that she wrote.
Fueled by the fact she goes on to FB to speak to Key Board Cowboys gtfoh
guns can kill people. But wait Abortion’s Literally KILL people. Love how her Hobbit Hunchmen brings that up
she needs a facial. luv, al
I take it they are mailing ballots to all Braintree residents to mail in? Then extending the date. Isn’t that the new system for voting? They don’t need a vote, she lost her privilege. I can’t even believe she refuses to resign. That alone shows her desperate need for some form of power and control. Just do the right thing and step down. You are an embarrassment. Instead you are really going to put all your neighbors through more bull shit. Do you think if you staid this will go away? It won’t but you could start by doing one right thing.
JUSTICE is served! Congratulations Turtleboy!!!!!
Wow, this is SOOOOO satisfying!!! I just did a cartwheel for the first time in 15 years!
Great start to the weekend.
Typical Democrat racism
All this over a Dead Whore
A) she was a Whore
B) she hit me
This woman is trash. Now all of her cancel culture friends are mad she is getting a taste of her own gross medicine. I call the food pantry and they were completely outraged by her actions. They informed me that she has no affiliation with to town food bank. Hopefully she’s history. She should be made to eat food off the ground like her scum bag friends said the veteran hero should have. You do stupid things, you win stupid prizes you disgusting woman
Why do the recall supporters need to collect thousands of signatures to force this vote? I believe the Massachusetts courts already ruled that because of the pandemic collecting signatures for elections is a public health hazard and they reduce the number of signatures one has to obtain to get on the ballot.
Why is it that these people always seek to blame someone else for their horrible behavior? They never take any responsibility for their own actions. Congratulations to Turtle Boy Sports for getting people to talk about fixing real problems! Keep exposing these fools! They deserve everything they get!
I’d like to see these lunatics practice what they preach by sending their daughters to school in Roxbury so they can truly experience diversity and other cultures. I will guarantee you that after a year in the Roxbury schools, their children will have vastly different political views from those of their leftist parents.
‘Off-color comments”? Never seen it here…
Some of her “friends “ are in fact members of the terrorist group Antifa . She is a Facebook member of many questionable political groups. She may be a pretty face but make no mistake she is for open borders , illegals, the constitutional rewriting of. The second amendment , open families and tax payer funded gender reassignment surgery for transgenders .. Vote her out !!!!! .
Sheep like this who long to he part of a click are always Antifa minded. The loud voices always look like the majority and they so want to be part of what they see as the popular group. Jokes on them come November
The COVAIDS liberal lockdown lunacy is pissing off thousands of industry professionals:
Over six thousand scientists and doctors have signed a petition against coronavirus lockdown measures, urging that those not in the at risk category should be able to get on with their lives as normal, and that lockdown rules in both the US and UK are causing ‘irreparable damage’.
Those who have signed include professors from the world’s leading universities.
Oxford University professor Dr Sunetra Gupta was one of the authors of the open letter that was sent with the petition, along with Harvard University’s Dr Martin Kulldorff and Stanford’s Dr Jay Bhattacharya.
I DEMAND to speak to Turtleboys manager!!
Ba-bye dumb bitch !
Gotta love Kelly’s Bio! “I have a degree in legal studies “. That would be an Associates degree and she worked as a Paralegal (maybe). Apparently she wasn’t good at it and became a makeup artist. Also loves to talk about leading a Girl Scout troop. Wow, you made crafts and sold cookies. You were a nightmare troop leader that bullied other moms. She try’s to sell it like she’s an attorney. Fraud, fraud, fraud!
People should know by now the Ethernet is not ones “personal space.” Certain issues expressed in this day and age could have serious repercussions down the road. It’s there and it’s not going to change.
One could find more adequate ways of dealing with their problems………I usually get drunk and go to the zoo and flip off the monkeys…..Just sayin.
Karen’s and Socialist school committees are Global warming for sure. Typically they believe they are doing good but truly do not understand economics, sociology or natural law and naturally gravitate towards collectivism to even-up their obvious deficiencies as citizens.
Two primates were killed and 12 others wounded in citywide gun violence Wednesday, including an 18-year-old ape killed in the East Side neighborhood.
A 14% kill rate is absolutely sickening. Filthy boons have been stuck on 2. 3 days in a row with 2 killings each day.
Thats not enough. Society will benefit greatly with increased kills.
Come on boons! Show us what you got. Show us how much your lives matter.
Because work is sending me there in a couple of wee and this concerns the hell out of me. I’ve never really been out of New Hampshire, and now I don’t know if I want to go or not.
Any advice would be welcome, thanks.
What a pussy…….
Chicago’s awesome. Just stay downtown or in Evanston. Skip the melanin enriched environments of the South and West sides.
The freaks come out at night
BTW, to her defenders of how she is an upstanding member of her community, I think John Wayne Gacy was as well. Ted Bundy too. I’ll wait for them to confirm.
Yup, studied a little law myself.
One down and only about 100,000 to go in the People’s Republic of Mass. These towns are run by leftist scum who need to be dealt with harshly.
Has relatives in the military so she can’t be disrespectful to veterans, and I bet she can’t be racist because she has a black friend too?
She isnt racist bacause she takes black cock up da poop shoot on a daily basis.
So horrible towards the elderly veteran you missed the whole anti-religious snark she threw in her FB comment. That was equally douchy.
Yup. I said “Fuck You Cunt” when she stated she wished she believed in life-after-death.
We get it cunt. You are a good person for delivering food to someone who doesn’t have the same political views as you, and you wanted everyone to know and agree with you that this man wouldn’t be in this situation had Hillary won in 2016. Don’t you wish we didn’t have a choice in who we voted for?
She is a fucking cunt. I hate her. I’m going to confession, because I do believe.
She should be recalled just for having a hyphenated last name.
The people have heard the case and have determined that Kelly Cobb – Lemire is a cunt…..a tired old useless….cunt
1) Katie Kenny McMullin: “You have a plan”? That plan should be stop stuffing your fucking face lady. Just because gyms are not fully opened, you can get your fat ass outside.
2) Wesley Rester: What the fuck are you looking at? (I know too easy, but get your fucking eye fixed already man, it’s annoying to look at)
3) Wesley Rester, How kind this queer must be to suggest throwing a Veteran’s food on the ground?
Yeah, I noticed that too. Liberals are some of the most savage, callous motherfuckers on the planet. Way worse than anybody they lambaste as ‘bad guys’.
Once a CUNT
Always a Cunty CUNT
Ha ha you fucking cunt.
Your a shitty person for what you said, shitting on an elderly person in need.
You magnificent bastard!!
That’s how you fucking MAGA!!
Keep it up.
These asses in “public service” are so full of themselves. Words have meaning and don’t think you can hide behind the liberal machine to make it all go away. The tide is turning and the libs should panic now. Real people now see you for who you are.
Westley Rester has shut down his facebook page and is curled up in a fetal posistion wandering what people think of him. I think he is a pickle smooching ass pirate
Any info available regarding her pet of choice and
home security system settings?
THIS HORRIBLE WOMAN SHOWS HER TRUE SELF ON FACEFUCK, WHERE SHE THINKS ONLY HER LIKE-MINDED FRIENDS WILL SEE HER VERBAL DIARRHEA. ALL THE CHARITY WORK AND PUBLIC DO GOODER SHIT IS ONLY A MASK. WORTHLESS FUCKING CUNT.
This fucking cunt only volunteers to deliver food to the unfortunate and needy because she is hoping a poc is there eager to receive their rations. This makes uppity white woke hyphenated musky snatch Kelly feel happy and extra white. When she is met by an actual needy person, a veteran who happens to be white and openly shows his support for a presidential candidate, Kelly gets angry and bitter. She acts out in a fit of rage on facebook, her adoring white supremacist followers urger her on and offer condolences to witnessing such a sight.
Btw tonight I learned, from “Um Tamim” that trump paid $$ to putin to kill American soldiers. Must have been paid in monopoly $$ or is it that Um is on some good shit!
Cognitive Dissonance is a phrase that morons use to make themselves sound intelligent. Fucking illiterate hodge-podge otherwise.
I’m so sorry that i got caught being a fraud. I’m so sorry that my food pantry delivery job (which i secretly loathe but yet do for woke points) got me in trouble. My true colors are on display. How dare someone disagree with my delicate sensibilities. I’m not helping those in need, I’m merely feeding my own narcissistic desires to prove to the World that I am in fact a good person. When in reality, I’m merely a Stepford Wife living a vapid existence. I only apologize for being caught as the fraud I am.
She’s a cunt plain and simple
How to avoid being Turtleboy famous in a few easy steps:
1. Don’t be a terrible person.
2. Don’t self-incriminate yourself related to step 1 by posting your stupid shit to social media. You’re really just doing it to get likes because you hate your life and need a self-esteem boost.
Kelly really failed both of these steps. Hard to feel sorry for her. Best way for her to move on with her life and re-assess her life? Get off social media. It’s a plague on society.
Looks like Kelly got a delivery from that new place, Karma. There is no menu. You just get what you deserve.
She doesn’t have a forehead. She has an eight-head. Heck, she might be related to Monica cannon-grant. They look the same from the eyebrows up. Except the tint is different…. sistas from anutha mutha.
Sorry but not sorry. Poor Kelly’s only regret is being outted.
How is that stick up your ass Kelly?
As for her friend, douchenozzle Katie McMuffin, needs to be investigated since she has “a plan” what to do with this elderly veteran’s food. Clearly she has some participation in delivering food for the needy since she wants to be next.
All the people defending her believe it’s just some kind of bashing band wagon political thing. This has zero to do with politics and it’s scary that they try to make it that way. She openly ridiculed this elderly veteran and even talked about his poor health. That could be anyone’s grandfather and it is just evil and sick. Her friend’s said worse responding to the post she started, but clearly she agreed with their twisted opinions of how to treat this old man in poor health. She just fueled on the hate and ridiculed him for getting assistance. Who wants that person in any position!
Nail on the head! Why is it a party thing when this is about basic decency?
Why have I yet to meet a School committee member who wasn’t a closeted nut job with an entitled self righteousness hidden by a Wine ‘o’clock (please like me, my husband hasn’t touched me in years) smile?
That is perfect! Too funny.
who else would go to those fucking 4 hour mutual love fest meetings?
Where the kids are an afterthought and they are trying to live their own childhoods over again through them? Please pay attention to me! Screams the fun mom in a tutu, begging the local paper to take her picture standing next to her ADHD drugged up hating their life “little angel”.
If she had written the same post and said he had a BLM sign in his yard, she would already be gone. Stop waffling Braintree and move forward . Remember no room for hate. Goes both ways.
Yeah she wants to continue to help people, and she cares about kids and the schools. That is until she sees one of them wearing a Trump shirt. You know without a doubt she’d be mocking them with her friends and looking down on them. Probably try and school them on her beliefs. There is no misunderstanding. She despises anyone who votes or thinks differently than her and there is no room for that on any elected board. Save your community from dealing with this and just resign you selfish horrible witch.
Front page of the Patriot Ledger today, thank you Uncle
Well…bye! God bless America
One shred…one iota of disrespect shown this gentleman = she’s dead to me.
I don’t give a flying fuck what the reason was. Fuck you and fuck facebook.
Best fuckin thing I’ve read in months.
Of course they blame TB! Who else would they blame? It’s never their fault, it’s never about accepting responsibility for their actions, it’s always somebody else’s fault. That’s what this world has become.
These fucked up public school districts are the direct result of School Committee Members and appointed Superintendents that have no children enrolled in the system. Most are made up of Teachers that work in other districts (but members of MTA), teachers spouses or have their children enrolled in private/charter schools
Time for this country to split up
These filthy liberal shit bags have ruined the United States
God bless president Donald J Trump
Actions- meet consequences.
Doesn’t matter how many veterans are in your family, disparaging even one is unacceptable. If this veteran was black or gay, you would have been long gone by now. Double standard is the hallmark of the Democratic Party, and you are a truly disgusting human being.
She’s a cunt a did uses Facebook to show everyone how wonderful she is. Well she’s not wonderful and is obviously trying to move up in the political world. That’s where these liberal assholes start. From school committee to city ir town council member. It’s in the Marxist playbook. Fill local political positions and move up
That’s why the wealthier towns ha e all these crazy aspiring politicians running.
You hit the nail on the head with your spot on observation . You are correct, the school committee is but a stepping stone n her political aspirations. How unfortunate for her she decided to post a glimpse. Of who she really is . Another fallen angel that TB exposed. I don’t care for her political or social views but I’m sure she is a lot of fun after half a box of Chardonnay. ..I bet she boycotts chick filet publicly but secretly her guilty pleasure is eating there twice a week !
“Hate Had No Home Here Either Princess”
LMAO!!!!!!!! Hypocritical bitches with too much time on their hands.
Get it now Kelly?
Good! Fuck her and her asshole supporters.
James Meredith, get back to your gloryhole in Provincetown . Those dicks ain’t gonna suck them self.
…accountability is not a thing.
Elections have consequences… so do dumbass posts.
Just another entitled cunt vote her out go live in california with other dem douche bags
Sure, she might be kind if you agree with her stupid politics. “When you look for a nice person, you see Kelly”….
No, I don’t fucking think so.
Looks like poster Um Tamim needs his own TB story. He/she, in a pitiful and failed attempt to defend Cobb-Lemire, resorted to a lie. Trump never called veterans losers. That was a fake story that has since been disproved. Um missed that because Um keeps going back to the media outlet that perpetrated that lie. Um also is going with some other kind of Russia conspiracy story. Um really really doesn’t get it. Um needs to be outed.
Once again, just like last night’s sham of a debate with cameltoe…they dance around the issues and actually say nothing. VP Pence did a great job shooting down cameltoe; and heels up harris crashed & burned because being the #2 in charge of America is not a hand out job for niggrrs like the MBTA.
Who among you would hesitate to throw all these pieces of human filth into a pit, douse them with diesel and throw a match? The days of trying to tolerate and discus are over.
Diesel fuel will not ignite at standard temperature and pressure. That is why it is used for school buses. You need to brush up on your pyromania and improvised munitions, for the coming bad times.
Light it with a Dixie Cup of gasoline and it will burn just fine
