WASHINGTON — Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, was carjacked Monday night about a mile from the Capitol.
His chief of staff confirmed the incident in a statement and said he was not injured.
“As Congressman Cuellar was parking his car this evening, 3 armed assailants approached the Congressman and stole his vehicle. Luckily, he was not harmed and is working with local law enforcement. Thank you to Metro PD and Capitol Police for their swift action and for recovering the Congressman’s vehicle,” the statement said.
Washington Metropolitan Police said an armed carjacking was reported at about 9:32 p.m. in the Navy Yard neighborhood of Southeast Washington. No information about the victim was immediately provided.
Once I may have felt for the guy regardless of his affiliation. Now I am up to the point where I just have to laugh at the karma bath he got and say he got away cheap.
Let’s hope that the crime element in D.C. continues to target congresscritters so they can leave the rest of us alone.
I haven’t said this in a long while, but now more than ever the country needs to secede from Washington.
