Democrats and Republicans are chastizing a woman who once ran for state office over posts she made on Facebook about the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Republican Martha Dean, who ran for state Attorney General in 2010 against George Jepson, posted a youtube link on her Facebook page on Monday with the status saying "Newtown setup? what is wrong here...". The video is about conspiracy theories about the mass shooting.
State Republican Party Chairman Jerry Labriola Junior says while it's the right of all Americans to express their views, Connecticut and the nation continues to struggle for answers abou the Newtown Tragedy. He called the posting ill-thought and highly insensitive.
Connecticut Demcoratic Party Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo says someone who purported to be qualified to be the attorney for the state of Connecticut should know better.
The posting comes the same month Newtown Representative DebraLee Hovey apologized for comments she posted to Facebook telling former Democratic Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords to "stay out of my towns."
The mass shooting survivor prepared to visit with victims families in Newtown.
