An Arizona Republican Party District Chairman resigned shortly after the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) and 18 others on Saturday. According to The Arizona Republic, Anthony Miller had been subject to verbal attacks and internet postings by apparent Tea Party members, and said he feared for his safety.
"I wasn't going to resign but decided to quit after what happened Saturday," Miller told the Republic. "I love the Republican Party but I don't want to take a bullet for anyone."

I can understand this persons scare.... but if youre gonna be a political figure and wanna be someone who does something great, you can't run and hide from a single incident. Probably better that he left, we don't need weak people in office.

Is the intimidation of government officials allowable in the current political environment? Should it ever be allowed?
