GOP member shoots target with Fla. Dem's initials.. desperate, hateful or ignorant?

to me its an attack on women and any politician this idiot can't beat. what is this can't beat them at the polls so shoot them? really sick.

MIAMI – A South Florida Republican said it was a mistake to shoot at a target with the initials of the Democratic congresswoman he is trying to unseat.
Candidate Robert Lowry made a brief statement to a local newspaper but refused to speak further Friday about the incident, which happened Tuesday during a weekly GOP meeting held at a gun range.
Lowry declined to comment to The Associated Press. He initially told the South Florida Sun Sentinel that shooting at a target with the letters "DWS" — a not-so-veiled reference to Democratic U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz — was a "joke," but then said it "was a mistake."

  • Don't be silly he was just an American Patriot who is trying to rid us of those evil, socialist, welfare taking Democrats.

    Democrats are vile and evil while Republicans are good and holy and only want what's best for the country.

  • I had a picture of someone I didn't like on my dart board as a joke seems like the same thing. If he had a target of a black man hanging from a noose then yes that would be wrong I think this was a joke that went to far he apologized time to move on. Dems do bad things Repubs do bad things they are humans and humans are imperfect.

  • How about this we get rid of all the politicians and start new. Anyways, if they keep up with stuff like this maybe we will not have to get rid of them they will do it themselves.

  • Ohh no harm done. LOL He certainly should have kept it private though.
    Shooting darts or beebees at pictures of something distastefull can be very therapudic. Just because someone would do that doesn't mean anythin gexcept that that person or thing irritates teh hell out of them. LOL Doesn't make them racist or a woman hater. You people need to stop grasping for hate. You are worse than the person you are complaining about.

  • People need to get a life. This was probably done in fun. I don't think he was out to "shoot" her. I bet the dems have done the same type thing.
