A former Georgia Congressional candidate who supported “responsible” gun control is now being charged with murder, local news affiliate WSB-TV reports.

Kellie Collins, who ran as a Democrat in 2017 to represent Georgia’s 10th District, is accused of fatally shooting her former campaign treasurer Curtis Cain.

Authorities at the McDuffie County Sheriff’s Office say that Collins turned herself in after Cain’s body was found in Aiken County, South Carolina.

Police went to Cain’s home for a wellness visit after he did not show up for work on Tuesday. Upon arriving, investigators say that Cain was dead from an apparent gunshot wound. His body had been there for at least four days, according to the coroner. The man’s Subaru Legacy was also missing.

Police suspect that Collins took the vehicle.  Along with murder, she’s being charged with grand larceny.

During her stint as a congressional candidate, Collins said more needed to be done to “shield the community from the effects of firearms falling into the wrong hands,” per a report on WJBF.

She also told Girls Really Rule, a feminist blog, that she would “practice what I preach and be a proponent of public policies that benefit the community as a whole.”

“When your friends and family are depending on you to make ethical decisions that affect their lives for many years a member of Congress should hold her or himself to a much higher standard than the bare minimum that many GOP members are currently using as a benchmark,” she told the website.

Collins would end up dropping out of the race, telling a local paper that it was for “personal reasons.” No word yet on when she’s scheduled to appear in court.

    Reminds me of the right wing kook who claimed COVID 19 was a “hoax” and “fake news.” Guess what. He croaked from COVID 19. Hypocrisy is what makes the world go round!

    This is yet another example that proves ALL political candidates should be required to have thorough background checks and mental fitness exams before they can even be a candidate for any public position.
    In other words, they need to be required to undergo everything that they want to foist on the public.

    Let’s hope that her “personal reasons” for dropping out of her candidacy was to undergo some mental illness treatment, but I highly doubt that…

    Democrats doing what democrats do, what would you expect from the party of NO morals.

    It won’t be long before the majority of the radical dems join this woman with their insanity !

    Sad, sad, sad. Yeah, right. Actually I’m laughing. The poor vic was no doubt a libtard too, since he worked for the perp’s failed campaign. So if this idiot hypocrite libtard perp had to have a murder victim, at least she picked one of her own kind.

    Sort of like, the ghetto gangbangers’ most common victims are their fellow ghetto gangbangers.

    Something about Darwin comes to mind…

    Hypocritical-responsible collins may never serve the good citizens of Georgia as a demoRAT politician but will be serving time.

    How deep will the main stream media AKA MSNBC ABC CBS CNN bury this story.

    • FirstStateMark August 17, 2018, 10:16 pm

      All you’ll hear are crickets.

  • Frank August 17, 2018, 8:52 am

    Typical rabid Democrats behavior.

  • Frank August 17, 2018, 8:49 am

    Not surprised at all. This is typical of a rabid Democrat, and there are many out there.

    Normally, I would say you can’t make this up, I could have easily made this up. Just like I am going to make up that her defense will be self defense somehow. And for taking the car to make it look like a home invasion or whatever, I await her excuse for that. I’m sure it will be a good one.

    “His body had been there FOUR at least FOUR days”????

    Who proofreads this stuff, the unbiased media?

  • Dr Motown August 16, 2018, 8:53 am

    Typical libtard: “do as I say, not as I do”

  • Clay Martin August 14, 2018, 8:28 pm

    anyone else this is akin to how the left always calls us racists and facist?

    • Luke August 17, 2018, 11:18 am

      Oh, c’mon. We’re deplorable after all. What else could feminists and clinton cultists possibly think.

    • Willie-O October 3, 2018, 7:30 am

      Clay –
      Well of course they do. Have you not looked into the depths of your being and seen the darkness within ? Surely by now you’ve come to realize just how truly awful you (we) really are. Rascist, fascist, sexist, misogynist…..pure evil. Public enemy #1. More specifically:
      white, middle-aged or older, Christian, heterosexual, conservative, married, father, gun owner or merely pro-2nd amendment, supports law-enforcement, does not support abortion except under specific and very limited circumstances, respects the flag, typically identifies as a Republican and of course, is male. As in an actual male, meaning born with certain “equipment” and not something else merely identifying as a male. There can be exceptions to any of the above EXCEPT that last one – you have to be a man to be the face of evil in this country today.
