On Friday, NBC reported 35-year-old Wendi Wright attempted to run over GOP Congressman David Kustoff with a car because she was upset with his support of the AHCA plan.
On Monday, BuzzFeed Reporter Brianna Sacks penned a lousy piece in response to Wright’s wild behavior. The title of the article was “People Say The Republican Congressman Who Was Allegedly Run Off The Road Is Ignoring Them.” With that intro, it is no surprise how the rest of the article will follow.
Here is more from NBC News.
Wendi Wright, a 35-year-old resident of Obion County, was charged with felony reckless endangerment after she purportedly tailed a car that Rep. David Kustoff, a Republican, and his aide Marianne Dunavant had taken from a town hall event Monday at the University of Tennessee at Martin.
Apparently, in their liberal worldview, Wright is the “victim” because she was supposedly upset the congressman didn’t set up a meeting with her when she requested it.
Although they don’t use the word “victim” to describe her, the article certainly portrays it that way.
A crowdfunding page set up by friends and family of a woman accused of endangering a United States congressman says she was upset the lawmaker didn’t return her requests for a meeting or to set up a town hall about the ongoing health care debate.
The organizer of the crowdfunding campaign, who identifies herself as Nicole Mc T, wrote on the page that Wright is a single mother who has been falsely accused and had been trying to speak with Kustoff before the alleged incident. Wright is studying early childhood education at the same campus where Kustoff’s meeting took place.
The crowd funding campaign says, “Congressman K has refused to hold any town hall meetings in his constituency. Multitudes of voters have requested a Town hall, over and over again.”
Even if he refused town hall meetings, it does not give anyone the right to harm another person. Then the author included multiple constituents from Facebook showing their frustration.
But Kustoff’s Facebook page is also littered with comments from people asking him to host a town hall, many of which demand an explanation about his vote to repeal and replace Obamacare. There’s also a related change.org petition.
On Monday, Sacks reported on her Twitter account that Wright pleaded not guilty, with a preliminary hearing set for June.

Ultimately, this woman is responsible for her actions. It is true she is innocent until proven guilty. However, BuzzFeed’s story conceded there were witnesses, which may not be good news for her.
The article was a sad attempt at giving Wright an excuse for her anger. It is another example why millions of Americans are fed up with the mainstream media not being completely honest.
