Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA) was carjacked at gunpoint on Wednesday as she returned to her vehicle after an event in a Philadelphia park.

The congresswoman was “physically unharmed,” according to a statement from her spokesperson.

“She thanks the Philadelphia Police Department for their swift response, and appreciates the efforts of both the Sergeant at Arms in D.C. and her local police department for coordinating with Philly PD to ensure her continued safety,” the statement said.

 

According to WPVI, “Scanlon was walking to her parked vehicle and was approached by two men driving a dark-colored SUV.”

“Both men, who were armed, demanded the keys to her vehicle, police say,” WPVI continued. “They took off with her blue 2017 Acura MDX with license plate LKG-8893.”

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney released a statement saying he was “appalled” by the crime.

“I’m appalled to learn of this violent crime that was perpetrated against my friend and colleague, Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon,” Kenney wrote on Twitter. “My thoughts are with her during what I’m sure is a traumatic time.”

“Everyone deserves to feel safe in our city, and sadly that hasn’t always been the case this year,” Kenney added. “It’s disheartening and infuriating that criminals feel emboldened to commit such a reckless crime in the middle of the day in what should be a place of peace — one of our city’s parks.”

    It’s exactly what our government in power has taught and sanctioned. And it rings across the country. Not just politicians being victims but citizens everywhere. It’s so disgusting. It started with Obama and has been on a roll with every democrat politician elected to office. Glorify criminals and this is what it will get you.

    Ask the Governor why he didn’t pass Constitutional Carry ? I forgot banning guns works, lol. These criminals could be stopped. And not by promoting their behavior. I bet she was in a gun free zone. How did that work out for ya Congress woman ? Democrats & Philly are a shining example as to what not to do. lol

    What happened to the part where she is an advocate of defunding the police? Did the perps get caught by the Deleware state police because Philly doesn’t have enough cops anymore, no thanks to her?

    According to Fox, her defund-the-police bill calls for mental health workers to be sent out instead of police. That is who they should have sent, a psychiatrist.

    What would you expect? It is the message of lawlessness preached in every liberal state in America.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich Fights Back DOJ Challenging Legal Citizenship Voter Law

Published

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich wrote a letter to the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division with one clear message: ‘We’ll see you in court.’

Biden’s DOJ is challenging an Arizona law aimed to protect its citizens by ensuring only citizens can vote in elections.

Brnovich makes mention of a letter he received from Kristen Clarke, Assistant Attorney General, dated June 27, 2022 “expressing your intent to challenge HB 2492, Arizona’s law that assures only citizens are able to vote in our elections.”

“Please be assured that I will defend this law to the U.S. Supreme our if necessary and defeat the federal government’s efforts to interfere with our state’s election safeguards, as I did last year in Brnovich v. DNC” the letter continued.

“It is curious, however, that the Department of Justice would use its resources to challenge a common sense law inn Arizona designed to guard against non-citizen voting, while the Biden Administration nis simultaneously opening our borders to encourage a flood of illegal immigration.”

“Is the federal government attempting to undermine our sovereignty and destabilize our election infrastructure?” Brnovich asks. “I hope that is not your intention.” The Arizona Attorney General concludes his letter by writing “I strongly urge you to reconsider your pursuit of this misguided suit and to instead recognize Arizona’s constitutional authority to conduct lawful and secure elections.”
