Giffords Discussed Palin Rhetoric in March 2010

Posted: Updated:

In an eerie flashback to March 2010, Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford discusses rhetoric and violence in the aftermath of the vote on heath care reform. Her office had been just been vandalized.

When asked if she was afraid she said that she was not, but said that the "rhetoric is incredibly heated."

She went on to say, "We are on Sarah Palin's targeted list, but the way that she has it depicted has the cross hairs of a gun sight over our district. When people do that, they have to realize that there are consequences to that action."
