• BEYOND PARODY: Obama Assistant Arrested for Shooting at Her Capitol Police Boyfriend

    It was a scene straight out of an episode of West Wing when a senior Obama advisor went bananas on her boyfriend, who she suspected of cheating on her.

    This is a love story in the Age of Obama, literally.

    Barvetta Singletary, who had been serving as special assistant to the president and House legislative affairs liaison since 2014, is being accused of shooting at her U.S. Capitol Police boyfriend with his own gun.

    Police reports say Singletary asked her boyfriend to meet at her home in Maryland because she wanted to have a night of romance. The two got hot and steamy and that’s when all hell broke lose. Singletary asked him about another woman. The conversation moved to her car. Then the shouting began. Singletary said something like, “If you’re not hiding anything, show me your phone.”

    Singletary’s boyfriend bucked her request. So she grabbed his service weapon, a .40 caliber Glock 23 pistol. Her boyfriend still refused to give up his phone, so she pointed the gun at him.

    “You taught me how to use this. Don’t think I won’t use it,” Singletary said, according to NBC 4. Singletary pointed and fired off one round, barely missing her boyfriend. He ran for his life and called the cops.

    Singletary was arrested, has had her White House clearances stripped away, and is currently walking the streets on $75,000 bond.

    This is, perhaps, the saddest thing I’ve ever written. Welcome to Obama’s America.
