The Arizona shooting tragedy has led some on the left to criticize former Nevada Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle for her strong views, saying they helped incite violence. But Angle, who lost to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid last year, rebuts the accusations vigorously, Politico reports.

Angle, Tucson, shooting, Arizona, Giffords“Expanding the context of the attack to blame and to infringe upon the people’s Constitutional liberties is both dangerous and ignorant,” she writes in a statement, Politico reports.

“The irresponsible assignment of blame to me, Sarah Palin or the TEA Party movement by commentators and elected officials puts all who gather to redress grievances in danger. Finger-pointing towards political figures is an audience-rating game and contradicts the facts as they are known — that the shooter was obsessed with his twisted plans long before the TEA Party movement began.”
