Kathy Dahlkemper is a friend and former roommate of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, and in a story Sunday reacted angrily to her shooting -- recalling how they were both "targeted" by Sarah Palin in the graphic from the Alaskan's PAC above:
Ms. Dahlkemper recalled Ms. Giffords' reaction to their being among 20 representatives targeted by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's website in the recent election. The site featured a map of the country with rifle crosshairs marking each Democrat's district.
"She was in the crosshairs of Sarah Palin, as was I," Ms. Dahlkemper said, her voice rising in anger. "We were both one of those. So that tells you what is going on with the rhetoric in this country, that has got to stop."
Chris Carney (another conservative Dem who supported health care reform, and who lost reelection last year like Dahlkemper) was also targeted in the ad and has called on Palin to apologize.
