South Carolina GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy was threatened Sunday at church by a woman with a gun.

Tell me Brian Ross: which Tea Party chapter is to blame?

Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy had a gun pointed at him Sunday while picking up his daughter from church, police said.

The suspect, reportedly identified as a 52-year-old woman, was arrested after the incident.

Police later issued a statement saying the suspect walked up to Gowdy’s vehicle “displaying a handgun” while he was waiting in the church parking lot. She twice told him to “stop following me,” police said, though he explained he was just waiting to pick up a family member. According to police, Gowdy then put his car in reverse as the suspect “started running after him on foot across the parking lot.”

The woman sounds mentally unstable, but we should probably find a reason to blame Sarah Palin, just in case.
