Absolute irony unfolding as a special assistant to President Obama has been arrested in an apparent shooting.

Barvetta Singletary, special assistant to President Obama got into a heated argument with a boyfriend and shot (at) the guy (wait for it ....)


with a gun !!

I guess she doesn't fully agree with Obama's stance on handguns.

Special Assistant to Obama Arrested for Shooting at Her Boyfriend



A White House staffer was arrested late Friday after allegedly shooting a gun at her boyfriend, an officer with the U.S. Capitol Police, during a heated argument, authorities said.

Barvetta Singletary, 37, who is a special assistant to President Obama and also holds the title of house legislative liaison, was charged with domestic violence in the incident, which police say occurred at her home in Upper Marlboro, Md.

Police say she summoned her boyfriend, who was not identified, by text message, and the two had sex. Afterward, according to the criminal complaint, Singletary went to the man’s car with him and accused him of dating other women. Inside the car, Singletary allegedly took the man’s cellphones and his service weapon, demanding passwords to unlock messages stored on the phones.

Of course this persona does not have anything to do with Obama's policies however, it does go to show EVERYONE how unattached they can become when they deem themselves untouchable….

The fact that she damn missed is just a cherry on top!

The boyfriend is a cop, so it is OK. It is socially acceptable to shoot or pistol whip cops in some areas now.

That guy really needs to turn in his Man Card. She took his phone and his weapon. Wonder if she keeps his balls in her purse too.

Yes, and she shot at him with his police issued weapon
after taking his cellphone from him.

Reports say he ran, and called the police.

She is just placed on "leave"???

Would of been cooler if she used a bow and arrow instead.


That's the official White House position on the matter.

So she used a firearm illegally.

There ought to be a law against that!

Actually, this incident illustrates precisely why the more reasonable gun control advocates want to ban handguns. Because of their size and portability, they're the types of weapons most often used when someone is having an emotional fit. From buying a weapon with a short waiting period, to grabbing a service gun. A home defense shotgun or a hunting rifle doesn't often get used this way.

Agree with gun control or disagree with it, this illustrates what happens when otherwise rational people get into heated arguments and there's a firearm nearby.

Hardly. Rational people don't shoot at someone over an argument. Period.

When emotions get involved, and perhaps a bit of alcohol, rational people cease being rational.

She helped create and get Obama care passed.


Singletary played an integral role in crafting the landmark healthcare law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and Health Education Reconciliation Act.

Crazy.


Then shouldn't she be charged with attempting murder of a police officer? Or is domestic assault the new charge for obama's political whores?

I'm guessing she intentionally missed to try and scare him into hopefully giving up his passwords.

After all, what she really wanted were the passwords to his phone.

But I could be wrong and she could just be a lousy shot.

Of the triangles of love and jealousy. And guns.
