Dead Black Woman at Capitol Building Blamed On Republicans

You knew it was going to happen. It had to happen. Miriam Carey, the Connecticut woman who drove her SUV into barricades at the Capitol Building and was shot and killed by police, is being used as a political tool by some Democrats. Here extremist actions are the fault of Republicans and the shutdown of the government that she did what she did.

Here’s what tax-cheat Charlie Rangel (D-NY) said:

“Listen, people are so frustrated and angry with members of Congress, particularly Republicans,” Mr. Rangel told Politicker today. “My first thought was that frustration ignited somebody already imbalanced and caused this type of thing.”

It’s always your first thought to blame Republicans, Mr. Rangel. The facts be damned.

How was this woman from Connecticut affected by the shutdown? She had a good job as a dental hygienist and was driving an early model Nissan Infiniti. This is an expensive car. It’s often described as a “luxury car.” While I can’t be sure, I bet she had employer-paid health and dental insurance.

She was described by her lawyer as “financially responsible.” Her sister said, “She works, she holds a job.”

According to an ABC report, Carey “believed President Obama was electronically monitoring her Connecticut home in order to broadcast her life on television.” In addition, she “believed she was the ‘prophet of Stamford’ and was capable of communicating with Obama.”

Again I ask, how was she affected by the shutdown?

Here’s Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) using the tragedy of Miriam Carey for political purposes. Does this woman have no shame?:

“God knows, the tragedy of this poor person who came on the Hill in a black car — no one knows what drive [sic] this person to do this — but what I would say to you is, let’s get our wheels back on, serve the American people, bring them back, vote for a bill today that will open the government, I will stay here until we get that bill on the floor, piecemeal is undeserving of America.”
