The D.A. As Sassy Contestant
Risa Vetri-Ferman is used to campaigning. But her latest campaign is a lot different from the ones she mounts as Montgomery County District Attorney. So is the very sassy photo that accompanies it. She's one of ten finalists in a contest called Women Of Worth, sponored by L'Oreal Paris, which recognizes do-gooders who are making "a beautiful difference" in the lives of others (L'Oreal has to use the word "beautiful," I guess, since it's a makeup company). As a finalist, Vetri-Ferman has already won $10,000, which will aid Mission Kids, the advocacy center she founded in 2009 to help child victims of sex-abuse and their families. The Women of Worth contest has just opened to a national, on-line vote. If Vetri-Ferman nabs the most support, Mission Kids will get another $25,000. Voting starts today, runs through Nov. 21 and you can vote once a day. In L'Oreal world, this is not voter fraud, so fear not. And the only Voter ID you'll need is an email address.
