Oh No! Media Whore Mark Kelly Threatens to Back Challenger to Jeff Flake in Five Years If He Doesn’t Get His Way

This guy is a textbook example of a man who knows how to dry up any reserve of sympathy .Now he’s reduced to petty threats if an elected representative doesn’t cave in to his demands.

Mark Kelly, the husband of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), is threatening to back an election challenge against Sen. Jeff Flake if the Arizona Republican votes against legislation to expand background checks.

At a Christian Science Monitor breakfast on Tuesday, Kelly said he would back an opponent to Flake if the “right candidate” was available and if the senator failed to support a background check bill, according to reports.

Flake, who is not up for reelection until 2018, has been close to Kelly and Giffords. But Kelly said the issue of control trumped their ties.

“You know, friendship is one thing,” Kelly said. “Saving people’s lives, especially first graders, is another thing.”

Obviously Flake wants more dead first-graders or something. As for Kelly, he must think everyone forgets his attempt to buy himself an AR-15 last month. Well, the media has, that’s for sure.

    Sen Flake is close to this vermin? That doesn’t say much for him then. This bastard STILL blames the tea party for the whackjob lochner, simply because it plays well.

    Everyone acknowldges that the expanded background checks under discussion would have let Jared Loughner and James Holmes through; neither had been in front of a judge.
    Adam Lanza could not legally buy a firearm yet because he was under 21. (And let’s remember that Lanza killed twenty-seven people and himself: his mother’s murder keeps getting submerged somehow.)
    So what part of any pending legislation would save the life of any first-grader? And how vicious am I for asking the question?

    What an embarassment. This guy is a bona-fide astronaut for god’s sake. Show some dignity, you clown.

    Oh no, Mark Kelly is going to support my opponent 5 years from now? Well I guess I’ll walk around the house and shit myself.

    Anyone catch the TV interview (CBS?) with this jackass and his wife? I stumbled on it a few days ago channel surfing in a hotel room. They aired footage of him shooting a pistol behind his house in the desert. But don’t worry wingnutz, he’s a responsible gun owner and you’re not. Fucking hypocrite.
