Sarah Palin published her “crosshairs map” to Facebook during the run-up to the midterm elections.
On March 25, 2010, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords [D-AZ], the congresswoman who was shot in the head over the weekend, made the following comment about being targeted on Palin’s despicable map:
...for example, we're on Sarah Palin's targeted list, but the thing is that the way that she has it depicted has the crosshairs of a gun sight over our district, and when people do that, they've gotta realize there are consequences to that action.
