Arizona GOP Releases ‘Wanted’ Poster With Bullet Holes Around Democratic Candidate’s Face

Arizona GOP Releases ‘Wanted’ Poster With Bullet Holes Around Democratic Candidate’s Face
Alice OllsteinFollow Politics Reporter @ThinkProgress

The image has outraged many in the state, as it comes just five years after another Arizona Democratic congresswoman was shot in the head at a public event.

Former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ), who survived the attempted assassination in 2011 but remains partially paralyzed with limited speech, joined the chorus of voices demanding the state GOP remove the “irresponsible” poster and apologize.

4. I'd like to see mug shots of everyone in the AZ GOP.

Whoever is responsible for this disgusting campaign should be held accountable BEFORE anything happens.

Was anyone who incited the violence the last time around held accountable or just the [email protected] who pulled the trigger?

What are the authorities waiting for? If we called for that, there would be an agent at our door within 20 minutes.

7. The GOP Won't Change Until A GOP Has The Same Experience As Gabby Gifford.

 

Republicans have the attitude that as long as a candidate gets attacked is just a Democrat or progressive it is no big deal really. And that is the way they treat the attack on Giffords. They mock her efforts on guns control even though her public appearance reveals how badly she has been effected. They only shed crocodile tears really. Fuck those hypocritical bastards.

Now they put a target on a Democrat and THAT IS OK. Simply bullshit.

10. One of the most disgusting thing I have seen...

I hope fair minded people in Arizona will see this for what it is...a call for violence..in a state where there was violence against Gabby Giffords...Perhaps..this will help the Democrats win this senate election....
Ann Kirkpatrick the current congressman from the 1st Congressional District in Arizonia is who the picture is trying to show...She is running against Mc Cain

What kind of insanity is this??
