ID U.S. Congressional candidate arrested for office supply store assault
KTVB ^ | 3-17-2012 | Jamie Grey

BOISE -- Police arrested a woman who reportedly walked into a Staples office supply store and threatened employees with a gun.

Employees at the store on Eagle Road and Chinden Boulevard say they called police when 58-year-old Cynthia Clinkingbeard made strange, threatening comments to three workers and pulled out a handgun. Clinkingbeard filed as a candidate to run in the primary for U.S. Representative. She is running as a democrat for the District 1 seat against Congressman Raul Labrador (R-Idaho). Clinkingbeard spoke to KTVB last Friday night as a witness to a Boise house fire; at the end of the interview, she says "Clinkingbeard for U.S. House of Representatives". Traffic shut down during investigation

Witnesses were able to give police a description of the vehicle the woman drove away in. An Ada County sheriff's deputy spotted the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop.

Because they assumed Clinkingbeard was armed, officers shut down traffic in both directions on Eagle Road as a safety precaution.

Two other adults were inside the vehicle. Police say they were unaware of what had happened in the Staples store.

Clinkingbeard is charged with three counts of felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She was booked into the Ada County Jail and as of Saturday afternoon was still in jail. Public records: Clinkingbeard's medical license revoked because of mental illness According to the Idaho State Board of Medicine, Clinkingbeard was a doctor specializing in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism. According to public records, her license was permanently revoked in 2005. The documents say Clinkingbeard suffers from bipolar disorder: "[Clinkingbeard's] bipolar condition is permanent and her manic episodes are progressively getting worse." The Board also said she had self-prescribed medication using her medical license. The Board determined she could not practice medicine safely. The document states: "The seriousness of her bipolar disorder is exacerbated by the additional dual diagnosis of narcissistic personality disorder which has cause Respondent's resistance to treatment and lack of insight." Suspect listed as current faculty at two colleges Clinkingbeard is listed as an adjunct faculty member at Boise State University in the biological sciences department. Current course catalogues at the College of Western Idaho show Clinkingbeard teaches "Health and Wellness" courses at that school.

First of all, bipolar in the US Congress doesn’t appeal to me. Second....I’ll bet she is anti-gun.

Notice how they avoid calling her a Democrat? Unless this is a Primary, she is running against a Republican and that would make her a Dem, or a Libertarian, or???

And to add some more irony. I’m not sure but “Domandred” (my hubby) said that he think’s that Staples is one of the company’s that Romney saved while he was at Bain Capital. He said he’d have to research to be sure. But I thought I’d add that.

she has a very mannish appearance.

Why is it that Republican/conservative women tend to be more attractive then Democrat/liberal women? Do the conservative women pay more attention to their appearance, whereas liberal/Democrat women don’t care?

Or is it “sexist” to even raise such a question?

"Would have been"?
She just upped her street cred with her fellow rats. She is the perfect Democrat candidate now, more electable than ever.

Actually I think it just boils down to the mental illness portion of “Liberals”. Not sexist. Man eating, crazed women typically don’t care about their appearance. Because they usually are trying to detract men from noticing them. ;)

You seem to assume that her arrest will preclude a successful political career? It cannot help but enhance her appeal with Holder’s people.

Guilty of charges as well as a high probability of a fake native American name/heritage

Only thing missing is an Occupy Boise connection

I’m sure Holder views her as a rising Rock Star and has dispatched a team to squash any charges.

Obama may nominate her for a “Medal of Freedom” for serving PETA as she was freeing the mice being held captive at Stapes.

Given that Romney helped start Staples, definitely a smart career move.

I guess it would be safe to assume her diminished capacity made her think she was pulling a gun on Romney.

lol!

She probably did think it was Romney!

This had to be the best “over coffee” satire that I’ve had in months!

In all seriousness. This woman should have been committed long ago. Or at least removed from her status at the colleges when she was stripped of her Doctor’s license. And we wonder why people “slip” through the cracks. She could have seriously wounded or killed someone. And worse... could have been let to become a law maker!

(buhahahaha) Okay I couldn’t hold it any longer. LOL

Actually, third sentence tells her affiliation, but they use a lower case “d” for some reason:

Clinkingbeard filed as a candidate to run in the primary for U.S. Representative. She is running as a democrat for the District 1 seat against Congressman Raul Labrador (R-Idaho)

I guess it’s true: Democrats really don’t discriminate against the mentally handicapped.
