Looks like Hillary Clinton might want to implement a little gun control for her own delegates.
A Hillary supporter and delegate to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia has been charged with attempted homicide after shooting her husband in the neck.
Deanna Vicites allegedly shot her husband in their home after a night of drinking. She at first claimed the incident was an accident, but later changed her story to an act of self-defense, claiming her husband had a history of abuse.
The District Attorney in the case said the incident was “absolutely not an accident,” adding “this is an intentional, reckless act.”
According to LawNewz Vicites was in jail on $250,000 bond as of Tuesday morning.
Here’s the kicker: Due to a prior felony conviction, Vicites was not permitted to possess a firearm. In other words, a criminal illegally obtained the gun she used in a shooting now under investigation!
For context, here’s Hillary’s Issues page which talks about “keeping guns out of the hands of … violent criminals.”
Vicites has yet to resign and faces a preliminary hearing on July 26, the second day of the DNC, which will be held in her home state.
Some reports have indicated she is set to resign next week. If she opts not to, she could very well end up still serving as a delegate!
Even if she does show up at the convention site, the DNC can rest easy in knowing that they have unseated two other delegates whose crime is even worse than Vicites’s. They are (yuck!) white men and are being replaced by females.
