Gifford’s Enters Rehab for Unspecified Addiction

January 22, 2011

Less than two weeks after being shot in the head by Jared Lee Loughner Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Florida) checked into rehab without specifically stating what substance(s) she has been abusing.

“To the best of my knowledge Gabby has not been using any illegal drugs,” said Campaign Chairman Mike McNulty who seemed caught off-guard when asked by reporters about Giffords’ substance abuse. “I’ve never even seen her have more than a single glass of Champaign.”

It is unclear as to how long Giffords will have to remain in the treatment facility but friends are optimistic that she will have a speedy recovery. And while Gifford’s did not comment on her reasons for entering rehab, she did admit that she regrets a statement she made months earlier at a campaign fundraiser when she said, “We need to repeal the Bush tax cuts like I need a hole in the head.”



  1. This is over the line and just in plain bad taste…

  2. There are endless news reports of the threats made prior to the event with Giffords taking no action to secure the event she staged. Had it not been for Gifford’s presence on that day, there would be no dead people or victims that day. I believe she actually needs to receive the death penalty for her crimes, but it may more likely be something like involuntary manslaughter and aggravated assault on multiple counts.
