We’re pretty certain this is going to be one of those posts where tweets disappear before we’ve even had the chance to publish them.
Ben Domench, publisher of the Federalist, had the foresight to take a screen capture soon after the Washington Post tweeted that a woman allegedly tried to run a Congressman off the road over his vote for the American Health Care Act.

Wendi L. Wright was charged with reckless endangerment after police say she tried to runRep. David Kustoff off the road following a town hall meeting May 8:
The Weakley County Sheriffs Department said Wright tailed the car carrying Kustoff. At some point, the congressman and his aide became afraid and worried that Wright wanted to force them off the road. They then turned into a driveway and stopped.Thats where Wright got out, screamed at the congressman and struck the windows of his vehicle, even reaching inside the car, the sheriffs department said.
Authorities said Wright then stood in front of the vehicle to try to keep Kustoff from leaving. At some point, someone called 911, but Wright left before authorities arrived.
It took only minutes before people were empathizing with Wright and asking where to donate to her legaldefense.

@washingtonpost And right on cue she's being hailed as a hero by left wing idiots.
Remember, the Republicans are the "party of hate"

@washingtonpost I am soooo going to hell for finding this funny. In an ironic kind of way, of course.

@washingtonpost In all honesty, isn't this just tit for tat? Reckless endangerment by both.

@pugbandit @washingtonpost She was in fear for her life. It was her or him and she chose to LIVE! I cannot fault a woman for standing her ground. He is a danger to her
