Dem vs Rep Silliness On Gun Range

24276C’mon people, initials on a target board? I don’t care what side of the political aisle you may be on, nor do I care what side of the ideological aisle you are on, someones initials on a target board does NOT call for anyone to get fired, quit their job, step down from a volunteer position, or even issue an apology. 

The Democrats, being prodded along by the White House are getting closer and closer to dumping Obamacare on the country, and this is supposed to be the GOP’s idea of taking a stand?! What a spineless bunch. No wonder the GOP is in such dire straits!

Congresswoman’s initials on target at gun range prompts Republican activist’s resignation

Republican activist Ed Napolitano has apologized to U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston, and resigned from all his Republican Party positions, over the actions of a Wasserman Schultz political opponent at an event sponsored by the club Napolitano used to lead.

Napolitano’s resignation and apology were prompted by what happened at the Southeast Republican Club on Oct. 6. Instead of the usual community center meeting room, the Napolitano-led club met at a gun range.

Among the approximately 40 people at the event was Robert Lowry, a Republican seeking his party’s nomination to run against Wasserman Schultz next year.

Lowry shot at a target bearing the letters “DWS” next to the silhouette head.

Lowry said he didn’t know who wrote Wasserman Schultz’ initials on his target, but said he knew they were there before he started shooting. He initially described it as a “joke,” but after answering several questions he said it “was a mistake” to use a target labeled “DWS.”

After the event was reported on in the Oct. 9 Sun Sentinel, it was picked up, reported, and commented on by national news outlets, generated a fury in the blogosphere, and drew critical reactions from Democrats.
Napolitano said he wasn’t aware of the target with Wasserman Schultz’ initials on the night of the event.

But in a letter to the congresswoman dated Oct. 12, he apologized.

“I would like to sincerely apologize to you and your family for an incident that occurred at a function we sponsored recently…. Let me say that this action was wrong and should never have happened. It was stupid and irresponsible to do such a thing.”

That’s okay, as Ed Napolitano is exactly the sort of wussified type that the party needs to be getting rid of.

What a wimp.
