Now Cardinal excommunicate her...do it...

He can't. Only the bishop of San Fran can do that. And based on who he is, I'm betting he won't.

BUT Wuerl can deny her in Washington DC stating that she caused scandal to the church and therefore excommunicated herself.

That’s what I’m looking for.

Excommunicating her would backfire. That’s what she wants, to become a martyr of the mean old bishops. The public smackdown is more effective, especially if the bishops (finally) keep doing it consistently, repeatedly to these high profile politicians. The repeated public statement that politician so-and-so should not present himself for Communion is as close as they can come to actual excommunication and if it is stated loudly and often enough and with some punch, like Chaput did, it’s the most effective strategy.

She has excommunicated herself ipso facto.

She should refrain from taking The Eucharist until she goes to Confession and makes a firm promise of amendment.

Just like any other Catholic who is living in mortal sin.

AS a public figure, I believe her penance should be to make a public statement to the errors of her ways.

She has arrogantly and scandalously continued to lead many people into an occasion of sin by her continued resolve to protect NARAl, abortionists, and population controller Planned Parenthood.

Did she make her statements to Browkaw Sunday before or after Holy Mass? Egads!!
