A liberal Democrat in Illinois has now resigned after receiving backlash to her posts on social media which attempted to blame the people of Wisconsin for the SUV attack which took the lives of 5 people Sunday night and left scores more critically injured.
As Fox News reports:
An Illinois Democrat who appeared to portray the Christmas parade tragedy in Waukesha, Wisconsin, as a form of payback for Friday’s acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha has resigned from her post, Fox News has learned.
Mary Lemanski resigned from her position as social media director of the Democratic Party of DuPage County, Illinois, on Monday morning, Anne Sommerkamp, the organization’s executive director, told Fox News in an email.
We are deeply saddened by the tragedy in Waukesha.We are aware of statements made by a former member of our organization and find them to be incredibly insensitive and not in alignment of who we are as an organization. Our organization does not support hate in any form

Sommerkamp confirmed that the Twitter account which appeared to post the series of mocking tweets belonged to the same Mary Lemanski who had just resigned.

Lemanski’s remarks mirrored that of other liberals on Social Media, who were quick to attempt to politicize the attack.
