U.S. Senate Candidate makes stop in Russell County
In June 13 Issue
Russell County News

Darlene Fitzgerald Price brought her campaign for the U.S. Senate to Russell County this past weekend.  

A candidate for the U. S. Senate, Price introduced herself to several Russell Countians attending a get-together in her honor held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jim Faller.

 A Native Kentuckian, Darlene was raised in Northern Kentucky until the age of thirteen, and then moved to McCreary County, where she graduated from high school.  

She is the youngest of six children. Her father was one of the first Navy Seals as a member of the elite "Frog Man Unit" during WWII, and served in the South Pacific and in the battle of Guadalcanal.  

Darlene has more than 20 years of successful experience in criminal justice: Military, federal law enforcement, and private industry.

She is an honorably discharged, decorated veteran who served her country not only as a Captain in the U.S. Army Military Police Corps (both on active duty and in the reserves), but as a U.S. Customs Special Agent fighting on the front lines of the War on Drugs.  

Darlene completed her B.S. Degree in Criminal Justice from Eastern Kentucky University by winning a full ROTC Scholarship, and a Masters in Secondary Education while on active duty in the military.  Darlene is finishing her Jurist Doctorate Degree while working part time as an investigator/law clerk in a Kentucky law office.

Her knowledge and experience includes most facets of criminal law, complicated conspiracy investigations, federal and civil court procedures, and the rules of evidence.  

Darlene has testified as an expert witness both in federal and state courts.  

She has worked closely with federal and state prosecutors for many years to obtain arrests and convictions on numerous high-level criminals.  

This involved the investigation of complex conspiracies of members of Colombian and Mexican organized crime cartels.  

These subjects were engaged in large-scale narcotics smuggling and distribution, as well as money laundering.  

As a result of Darlene's work, huge quantities of narcotics have been seized, millions of dollars in U.S. currency confiscated, and hundreds of illegal firearms removed from the hands of violent criminals.

As a Customs Special Agent, Darlene was also a cross-designated Secret Service Augmentee for the Department of Treasury.  

She has protected heads of state, Senators Bob Dole and Hillary Clinton, foreign dignitaries, and other political officials.  

Darlene has worked extensively in the field of Counter-Terrorism as it relates to U.S. Borders and Ports of Entry.  She has appeared numerous times in the national and local media, including Fox News, C-Span and MSNBC, as well as other television and national radio shows.  

Several news articles have been published about her National Security Whistleblower story.  

Darlene has written for the national and international press as well as given live testimony before Congress on these issues.  

She is the co-author of the book "BorderGate", which details her brave fight against corruption within the Department of Homeland Security.

She has had the opportunity to liaison with ambassadors, diplomatic officials, attaches, high-level military officers, business leaders, the media, and the public at large, drawing on her vast knowledge and expertise of law enforcement, Counter Terrorism, and National Security Whistleblower issues.
