Carolyn McCarthy, the dumbest white woman in Congress, has announced her, long overdue, retirement, from Politico :
Two veteran House Democrats, Reps. Carolyn McCarthy of New York and Mike McIntyre of North Carolina, will not seek reelection in 2014, according to multiple Democratic officials and aides.
McCarthy came to Congress after her husband and son were both shot in a December 1993 incident on the Long Island Railroad. McCarthy’s husband, Dennis, was killed, while her son survived the incident.
No doubt McCarthy came by her blondness naturally. McCarthy was made a widow due to New York’s inane gun control policy which made a Long Island Railroad coach into a free fire zone, from Wikipedia :
McCarthy worked as a nurse. On December 7, 1993, her husband, Dennis, was killed and her son, Kevin, was severely injured by spree killer Colin Ferguson, who opened fire on a Long Island Rail Road commuter train. In response, she ran for Congress on a gun control platform, defeating Republican Dan Frisa in the 1996 elections.
Having been made a widow because of gun control, McCarthy had it her pet issue to expand gun control. Go figure.
