Republican activist charged with shooting at workers

A longtime Republican Party activist has been indicted on charges of shooting at workers cutting down trees at her Woodway home.

Carolyn Payne Lomax, 63, was indicted Wednesday on two counts of aggravated assault in a 2004 incident when Asplundh Co. workers were trimming trees around utility lines for utility company Oncor.

This time, Lomax said, the workers appeared to be mocking her in Spanish. After repeated pleas, she said, she went inside and grabbed a .22-caliber pistol from a desk drawer. "I went back out in the yard and I said, 'I have a gun. Get off of my property. You're trespassing,'" Lomax said. "They laughed, and they continued to cut." Lomax said she fired two or three shots and called police to report the trespassing

"Judging from the phone calls I have received in support of Mrs. Lomax, I have serious concerns as to why this assistant district attorney would seek an indictment on this particular case, especially without communicating with me first on the matter," said her attorney, Abel Reyna.

1. "mocking in Spanish" is a capital offense in Waco
punishable by immediate vigilante execution by the victim of the taunts.

2. That's The Definition of Republican Activism
Just shoot anyone you don't like or disagree with.
