Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy had a gun pointed at him Sunday while picking up his daughter from church, police said. The suspect, reportedly identified as a 52-year-old woman, was arrested after the incident. The South Carolina congressman's office confirmed the account but offered few details about the threat beyond thanking the police in Spartanburg, S.C., who assisted.

I haven’t seen any evidence suggesting that this woman is a lefty, or that politics had anything to do with this incident.
I believe the accused individual has mental issues. She stole the gun from an acquaintance or relative.
What do you think?
Looks too stupid to realize she was threatening a congressman.
Trey Gowdy is a Tea Partier.
Crazier than a $hithouse rat!
She was smart enough to not point the gun at herself. Stop making these lame excuses for these animals.
Obamavoter, I think.
Brackett has had several run-ins with Georgia authorities, Spartanburg Public Safety Director A. Tony Fisher said. According to Fulton County jail records, she was arrested in 2007 on a stalking charge and released on $5,000 bail. She has no prior criminal record in South Carolina, according to state police. ajc.com

A DERANGED ZERO SUPPORTER!!!
I am sure the DoJ could uncover the leftwing conspiracy and militia behind this.
She is the new DU hero I bet.
I was taught if you pull your weapon the next step is pull the trigger.
Just saying, either your in or your out.
Maybe she got confused and thought the congressman was Treyvon Martin, who was “stalking her”.
And she can vote in November?
The radio news report I heard failed to mention Gowdy is GOP. You can bet your bottom bippy the story would have been moved to front of the pack with direct mention of his party if Gowdy had been a Dimwit. MSNBC would have speculated whether the woman was a “teabagger” or some demented right winger and would have expressed sympathy for the victim and outrage over the attacker. Could this attack be “traced back to the GOP and GOP beliefs?”
An affair gone wrong, perhaps?
Can you just IMAGINE the Mainstream Media s**tstorm we’d be treated to had a Tea-Partier pointed a gun at a Black Democrat Congressman?
But, since the roles are reversed, this gets a big yawn from the MSM.
I’m glad to hear that Trey and his daughter weren’t harmed.
