Tucson shooting survivor threatens Tea Party leader
Eric Fuller was wounded last Saturday in Tucson. He took the fame his injuries gave him and used it to blame Palin:
“It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target,” Eric Fuller, a former campaigner for Ariz. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, told Democracy Now. “Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled.”
That was a day ago. Today he's achieved a bit more fame, making death threats of his own.
Toward the end of the town hall meeting Saturday morning, one of the shooting victims, J. Eric Fuller, took exception to comments by two of the speakers: Ariz. state Rep. Terri Proud, a Dist. 26 Republican, and Tucson Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries.
According to sheriff's deputies at the scene, Fuller took a photo of Humphries and said, "You're Dead."
Deputies immediately escorted Fuller from the room.
Tea Parties and their leaders had nothing to do what what happened last week in Tucson. As for Fuller, yeah, he's as liberal as you'd expect. Do we need any evidence that he ever read a Paul Krugman column before leaping to the obvious conclusion?
