Johnny Rhoda, a Republican district chairman in Arkansas, said earlier in the week that Hillary Clinton would be shot if she ever came back to the state. Rhoda at first claimed he was taken out of context. Congressman Tim Griffin put out a statement.

Griffin condemned Rhoda’s remark as “offensive” and said the decision to step down “is the right one for him, the Party and Arkansas.”

Rhoda told U.S. News that if Clinton ran for president in 2016 and came to her old home state of Arkansas, “She’d probably get shot at the state line.”

    It’s really hard to take comments “out of context” when they call for having someone shot. Say it, OWN it.
