Home of Mississippi Candidate Sprayed with Bullets

A candidate for the House in Mississippi state legislature had quite the scare this week.

Tamarra Grace Butler-Washington, running for the open seat in the 69th District, had her house sprayed with bullets, reported the Daily Caller.

Butler-Washington narrowly missed getting shot during the attack.

Scary Moments

The attack took place just after midnight on Saturday.

WAPT reported that four gunmen opened fire on the home. Butler-Washington stated that she had tried to look through a window when a bullet went through the window, narrowly missing her.

The bullet reportedly passed through the bar, and into the garage, where it hit some of her campaign signs.

She stated, “I instantly just fell out of the chair and began to crawl on the floor.”

She continued, “Hearing it was terrifying, but seeing it, and all of the bullets, and all of the gunfire, it just sent chills down my spine. It’s a feeling that I’ve never felt.

“What really bothered me, to see that they were young men, you know, they were teenaged, they all looked young.”

Mississippi runs an open party race in the state House, so there are no party affiliations given to the candidates. However, Butler-Washington is a registered Democrat, and the candidate she would be replacing is also a Democrat.

That being the case, I am sure people will come to the conclusion this was a politically motivated attack, but her description of the shooters makes that seem unlikely.

To me, it sounds more like some type of gang initiation.

Butler-Washington later added, “Today, still a little shaken, but I thank God that no one was hurt, I thank God that we were covered. My son slept through the entire ordeal, which is such a blessing, because things of such nature, it traumatizes children, it traumatizes adults.”

We are just thankful nobody was killed, as we have seen far too many children die in these types of attacks in Democrat-run cities over the last few years.
