Breaking: Gabby Giffords resigning from Congress.

Congresswoman Giffords, of course, was gravely wounded in 2011 in a murderous attack by a madman that left six dead and thirteen injured. Since then, Giffords has made a remarkable recovery; unfortunately, it apparently has not been enough of a recovery, so she’s resigning in order to concentrate on her health.  The video below of the announcement both shows the extent of her injuries, and the impressive extent to which she’s already surmounted them: I don’t know if Congresswoman Giffords will ever heal fully, but she’s already doing much better than I privately expected.

More here (via Hot Air Headlines): as this is a House seat, the Governor of Arizona will schedule a special election for the remainder of Giffords’ term.  Obviously, our best wishes and prayers for Congresswoman Giffords’ continued recovery.

  1. While I wish her well and I am not saying this to be mean, she should have done this sooner. This would have given her district a representative who is not recovering from a gun shot to the head, much sooner. I would be upset at this point if my Republican representative waited to long to resign. Oh, wait…
