Sad. I understand she was a strong voice for the unborn.
Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter one’s thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist. That, of all rights, is the dread of tyrants. It is the right which they first of all strike down.

And Patton was killed by a head-on collision as well, with the truck driver who caused wreck never arrested, later never found, and records or 'accident' mysteriously vanished.

Russians use poison.  American leftists use vehicles.

I always keep a side eye when this kind of stuff happens. Though it's surely an accident, if you have the will, focus, means, and manpower you setup almost anything to look like an accident.

You just never rule anything out till the evidence is irrefutable.

Edith must have been fully committed to the cause.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

It could be a simple as late stage terminal cancer. Take a dive and your family gets a million bucks.

Not saying it happened, but our intelligence agencies perfected alot of this stuff long ago without leaving a trace. If they wanted it done, it would get done.

Walorski successor to finish final weeks of late Indiana GOP congresswoman's term
by David Mark, Senior Editor |
 | August 04, 2022 08:51 AM

Republican and Democratic officials will choose nominees to complete the final weeks of the late Rep. Jackie Walorski's House term. The Indiana Republican was killed on Wednesday in a car crash in her district.

Emma Thomson, 28, Walorski's communications director, and Zachery Potts, her 27-year-old district office director, were traveling with Walorski and also died in the accident, on state Route 19 in the congresswoman's hometown of South Bend, Indiana. Walorski, 58, was first elected to the House in 2012, after five years as a state representative.

A special election to complete Walorski’s unexpired House term will be held because the vacancy occurred more than 74 days before the general election, according to Indiana election law. That election almost certainly will coincide with the regularly scheduled Nov. 8 election for a full term, for the 118th Congress, which starts on Jan. 3, 2023. The truncated term will be a matter of weeks, with Walorski's successor likely to be sworn in during a post-Election Day lame-duck session of Congress.

Police change account of crash killing Indiana Rep. Walorski
By TOM DAVIES 31 minutes ago

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Police have changed their description of the crash that killed Indiana Republican U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski, saying Thursday that it was the SUV in which she was a passenger that crossed a state highway’s centerline and caused the head-on crash.

Walorski and two members of her congressional staff died in the Wednesday afternoon crash in northern Indiana, along with the woman driving the other vehicle, the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Office said.

The department’s initial account of the crash was that the car driven by Edith Schmucker, 56, Nappanee, Indiana, crossed into the SUV’s path, but the office released a statement Thursday saying investigators had talked with witnesses and viewed video evidence that their preliminary determination of which direction the vehicles were traveling was incorrect.

Investigators determined that the SUV driven by Zachery Potts, 27, of Mishawaka, Indiana, crossed the centerline for unknown reasons in a rural area near the town of Wakarusa. Potts was Walorski’s district director and the Republican chairman for northern Indiana’s St. Joseph County. Also killed in the crash was Emma Thomson, 28, of Washington, D.C., who was Walorski’s communications director.
