Democrat Congressional Candidate Arrested for Aggravated Assault

Posted by on Mar 18, 2012 at 9:32 am

Let’s make her the face of today’s Democratic Party. Usually they wait until they’re in offer before assaulting our freedoms. This one wants to get a head start, I guess.

Boise Police arrested Cynthia Clinkingbeard, 58, Boise, on Friday after she reportedly walked into a store at Eagle Road and Chinden Boulevard and threatened employees with a gun.

The website of the Idaho Secretary of State lists Clinkingbeard as a Democratic candidate in the May 15 primary race for the First District congressional seat.

Clinkingbeard was a doctor specializing in edocrinology, diabetes and metabolism, until the State of Idaho Board of Medicine revoked her license in 2005.

On Friday, police were called at 9:15 p.m. by employees of the store who told dispatchers a woman, later identified as Clinkingbeard, had walked into the store, made strange, threatening remarks to three employees before pulling out a handgun. The caller told dispatchers Clinkingbeard then left the store, continuing to make threats, and drove off in a car.

They described the car to dispatchers. An Ada County Sheriff deputy quickly spotted it driving south on Eagle Road. The deputy, joined by Boise and Meridian police, made a felony traffic stop. Because Clinkingbeard was reportedly armed, they closed Eagle Road in both directions for a brief time.

I guess this is the new civility Democrats are preaching. Apparently she had her medical license revoked due to mental illness.
Clinkingbeard filed a declaration of candidacy for Idaho’s District 1 congressional seat against incumbent Rep. Raul Labrador. Prior to 2005, she was a Boise physician specializing in endocrinology. According to public records, the state Board of Medicine revoked her medical license for reasons related to mental illness.

    Sounds like she’s going thru the change. Menopause can be a serious reproductive issue for aging democrat women. She was just demanding hormone therapy at gunpoint. Why this war on women?

    Come on. She’s not even the nominee. Any crazy person can become a candidate for a nomination for the House. If a crazy person registered as a Republican candidate, would that say anything about the ethics of the Republican Party, or of conservatism?

    No. Really – who’s that guy in the picture? The arresting officer? The admitting officer?

    Perhaps as a liberal, and therefore incapable of detecting irony, yet only capable of creating super abundance in same, she was demanding, at the point of a gun, harmony therapy…

    No, of course your right. The womans action says nothing of the Democrat party,but if she were a Republician, this would be on the national news for a week. This is equal news. If you want fair you have to give fair. Did you say anything when this sort of comment was made of a Republican? I didn’t think so.

    I know fundraising is sometimes hard for underdog candidates, but armed robbery seems a little desperate.

    She earned a degree that entitled her to be called “doctor,” went off the deep end, and started threatening people.

    And you’re telling me this was Boise, Idaho, not Eugene, Oregon?

    “Apparently she had her medical license revoked due to mental illness.” So at least we know she’s qualified for the congressional seat.

    For the hankdbook, this is how Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili’s first campaign started out, too. It worked for him.

    I would check with Bernard Flapdoodle and George Tirebiter to find out if her mental stresses were aggravated by membership in the Funny Names Club of America.

    That’s what you get for running against a Labrador.

    What kind of “strange, threatening remark” did she make?

    -“I’m a Democrat and I’m here to help.”
    or maybe
    -“Vote for me and I’ll support Obamacare.”
    or maybe
    -“See how easy it is for mentally unstable people to get a handgun? Vote for me and I’ll close those loopholes.”

    It’s obvious the GOP War on Women drove her over the edge. That’s why she went into this retail outlet and started babbling about Sandra Fluke and the raw deal Lily Ledbetter got too.

    Media pays no attention. She walks. She wins her election. In IDAHO!! We are so screwed!!

    And you can bet if she had a Concealed Carry license, the Press would have blown this into a Giant Thing (with the Party carefully clipped out, nach)

    Armed robbery is the traditional fundraising method of the radical Left and of Communists, until they enter Academia and can use the Development Office to do it for them.

    At this rate she can become Governor, all she needs it to be convicted of drunken driving.
