BREAKING: Democrat Congresswoman Carjacked at Gunpoint in Her Philadelphia District

Democrat Rep. Mary Gay Scanlan was carjacked at gunpoint on Wednesday afternoon.

The incident took place in her Philadelphia district as she was leaving a meeting at approximately 2:45 p.m.

According to a statement posted to her social media, Scanlan was physically unharmed during the incident.

“The Congresswoman was physically unharmed. She thanks the Philadelphia Police Department for their swift response, and appreciates the efforts of both the Sergeant at Arms in D.C. and her local police department for coordinating with Philly PD to ensure her continued safety,” the statement read.

Democrat Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney released a statement about the incident saying that the incident was “disheartening, and quite frankly infuriating.”

“Everyone deserves to feel safe in our city, and sadly, as we know, that hasn’t always been the case this year. It’s disheartening, and quite frankly infuriating, that criminals feel emboldened to commit such a reckless crime in the middle of the day in what should be a place of tranquility and peace — one of Philadelphia’s beautiful parks,” Kenney said in a statement to local station KYW-TV.

“I’m thankful that she was not physically harmed during this incident, and my thoughts are with her during what I’m sure is a traumatic time,” Kenney added.

    Carjacking sucks. I hope this changes her policy positions as they are likely policies that led to the criminal environment that encouraged that event.

    One got jacked in Chicago too (Name of Lightford I believe. At first, I thought it was Lightfoot and maybe some relation to BJ. But, you can’t have everything). Well good. I think politicians should live in the same reality as they have inflicted upon their constituents. Of course, they will get their car back and /or see an arrest. We would just get a shrug of the shoulders from the police and told to call our insurance company. That is, when they find time between shootings to take a report.

    For those of you wondering about the nascent democrat effort to “refund the police” I give you exhibit “A”. It matters all of a sudden when crime affects them personally. Poor people? Not so much.

  4. “Continued safety ” ; Is there such a thing for the forgotten among us?

    Maybe that Soros DA will find the suspect guilty and give him a whole year of probation
