Natacha Seijas Tells A GenTV Reporter To Take A Hike

Natacha Seijas don't answer nothing about nothing, ya got that?
Natacha Seijas should just get on her broom and fly off whenever a pesky journalist confronts her for comment about the recall against her. As we write this, the Wicked Witch of Northwest Miami-Dade is probably brewing up some diabolical potion for her latest media nemesis, GenTV reporter Claudia DoCampo, who had unsuccessfully tried to reach Seijas until Monday afternoon. The bilingual reporter confronted the county commissioner following the ribbon cutting ceremony for a clinic opening in Hialeah. DoCampo got a dose of Seija's popularly charming personality.

A video of their exchange was uploaded to youtube. It shows DoCampo intercepting Seijas as she is walking through the clinic's glass front door. "I'm busy," Seijas huffs in Spanish. "No maam, no maam." Seijas then shoves the reporter out of her way. 



DoCampo follows Seijas inside. "Why won't you answer a simple question?" DoCampo pleads. Seijas turns her back to the camera. Seijas finally loses it. She turns around to face DoCampo and she pushes the microphone down, away from her face. 

In Spanish, the commissioner scolds the reporter: "Maam, we are not here for that. We are here for something very special, ok? There is an ongoing lawsuit. I am not going to answer you. Do you understand what a lawsuit is? Ok? Thank you."

DoCampo informs Banana Republican that she has been trying to get an interview with Seijas since petitioners began gathering signatures to recall the Hialeah politician. "I've been to her commission office," DoCampo relays. "I've been to her house. I left her my card. I was at the event to ask Julio Robaina some questions and she happened to be there so I decided to go up to her."

Natacha should just get on her broom and fly off. Good suggestion, but I prefer something a tad mor proactive...such as ....Sweep Natacha Seijas out, with the same broom she flew in on.....or....Drop a house on Natacha and take her ruby shoes, or vote March 15, and then you can choose..

of course the old standard might work, dousing her with water...and she might melt, and for a few moments, she might appear svelte.

Well I think the journalist behaved very inquisitive and harassed the comissioner looking for her answer.That's taking advantage from her.I'm not by the comissioner's side,but this is my opinion.If you want to interview someone you have to be respetful.Certainly the comissioner was a victim of press harassment.That video just showed a relentless pursuit..!!

Natacha handled herself well, if that reporter stalked me like that i would have clocked her. Dont get me wrong, I despise Sejas, but that reporter was out of line.

Good for you Claudia. Keep it up and give these politicians hell.

If the journalist spent months trying to get a comment and was turned down at every turn it's her duty to pursue an answer. If being polite and respectful for months yield nothing when is it appropriate to force the matter a bit?

If she simply replied when the reporter was polite it would never have escalated to this point. A little civility goes a long way, and that goes for both of them but from what I've seen the reporter was civil but firm.

Claudia was simply rude to Seijas, regardless of her position as a County Commissioner/public official, claudia was disrespectful and has very little journalistic integrity or capacity.
