A woman in Tennessee was arrested earlier this week after she tried to run her Republican congressman off the road when he refused to listen to her grievances for voting to repeal and replace Obamacare.
According to BuzzFeed News, Rep. David Kustoff (R-Tenn.) was leaving the University of Tennessee at Martin when the woman confronted him over his vote. When the congressman left instead of debating the issue, the woman took matters into her own hands.
More from BuzzFeed:
Wendi L. Wright, 35, was arrested and charged with felony reckless endangerment for the incident that occurred in Weakley County on Monday.
Wright allegedly followed a car occupied by Tennessee Rep. David Kustoff and two others on a highway and placed them "in fear of being forced off" the road, according to the Weakley County Sheriff's Department.
The other occupants of the car included the driver and Kustoff's aide, Marianne Dunavant, Sgt. Marty Plunk of the sheriff's department told BuzzFeed News.
Once Kustoff's vehicle stopped, Wright "began screaming and striking the windows," police said. Eventually, Wright was arrested for the incident after she posted about it on Facebook and refused to cooperate with authorities.
Despite allegedly putting the congressman's safety and the safety of his aides in question — in addition to other motorists on the road — liberals responded to news of the story with praise for Wright.

It was even argued that Wright allegedly committed the crime in "self-defense."
