McDonald hospitalized in Chicago; Republicans threaten new F&F subpoena
Examiner ^ | September 28, 2012 | Dave Workman

Otis McDonald, one of several headliners scheduled to appear at this weekend’s 27th annual Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC) in Orlando, Fla., has suffered a serious head injury and is in intensive care at a Chicago-area hospital, Gun Rights Examiner has learned.

Alan Gottlieb, executive vice president of the Bellevue-based Second Amendment Foundation, notified members of the SAF Board of Directors during their meeting in Orlando today. McDonald was scheduled to speak during the Saturday awards luncheon, which also features U.S. Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) and former Ambassador Donald A. Mahley.

McDonald apparently fell and suffered a serious head injury. He now has a cerebral blood clot. The report is also being carried on the popular website “No Lawyers, Only Guns and Money.”

The program will continue without Mr. McDonald’s appearance, Gottlieb confirmed. The big draw Saturday morning will be attorney Mark O’Mara, who is defending George Zimmerman, who is charged with second-degree murder in the slaying of Trayvon Martin.

Indeed, O’Mara’s scheduled appearance was the lead front page story in Friday’s Orlando Sentinel, above the fold. It is the first time in GRPC history that it has been front page news in any host city, and media attention is expected to be heavy.

“MEANWHILE, CBS News is reporting that Congressman Darrell Issa and Senator Charles Grassley, the men who spearheaded Capitol Hill’s 21-month investigation of Operation Fast and Furious, are “threatening to subpoena” Kevin O’Reilly, the White House official who was quickly whisked out of the country after his name came up last year during the second congressional hearing on the gun walking scandal.”

He simply ‘fell’ somewhere in ‘Chicagoland’. Just like that other guy just wandered dead into a dumpster. What’s the matter with you? Someone might get the idea you might not trust our benevolent govenment or something.

“Whoever took that shot’s probably dead now.

That’s how a conspiracy works.

Them boys on the grassy knoll, they were dead within three hours.

Buried in the damn desert. Unmarked graves out past Terlingua.

And you know this for a fact?

Still got the shovel.”
