Local woman wants senators shot

Posted on Thu, Aug 12, 2010 at 2:56 PM

U.S. Senate candidate Dino Rossi blew into town last week to meet with his people one last time before ballots are due. It was a typical campaign stop: Glad-handing, elbow-rubbing... death threats against his opponent.

What?

According to an article today in the Seattle Times, at a business roundtable discussion, an unnamed Spokane businesswoman said Sen. Patty Murray "ought to be shot." 

From the article:

One woman, the owner of two gyms and a temporary-employment agency, was venting about a pro-union bill supported by Murray when she blurted out: "She ought to be shot. Murray and (Sen. Maria) Cantwell ought to be shot."

Rossi quickly pointed out a reporter in the room, and then said, "That's not really what you meant." The businesswoman quickly agreed: "I didn't mean that."

Yikes.
