Giffords Opponent Held June Rally To “Shoot A Fully Automatic M16” And “Remove Gabrielle Giffords”
Jane Hamsher has the story of a June event held by Gabrielle Giffords’ 2010 Congressional opponent Jesse Kelly that was billed on Kelly’s website, which has now removed the event.
“Get on Target for Victory in November Help remove Gabrielle Giffords from office Shot a fully automatic M16 with Jesse Kelly”
According to the Arizona Star:
Jesse Kelly, meanwhile, doesn’t seem to be bothered in the least by the Sarah Palin controversy earlier this year, when she released a list of targeted races in crosshairs, urging followers to “reload” and “aim” for Democrats. Critics said she was inciting violence.
He seems to be embracing his fellow tea partier’s idea. Kelly’s campaign event website has a stern-looking photo of the former Marine in military garb holding his weapon. It includes the headline: “Get on Target for Victory in November. Help remove Gabrielle Giffords from office. Shoot a fully automatic M16 with Jesse Kelly.”Click here for reuse options!
