Former Clinton Operative Dies in Texas Car Crash

Grace Garcia, a former longtime Clinton operative, died Monday in a car accident in Waxahachie, Texas, according to a release from Annie’s List, where she served as executive director.

“It is with a tremendous sense of loss that we announce the passing of our executive director and leader Grace Garcia, who lost her life in a car accident Monday afternoon,” Annie’s List Board Chair Amber Anderson Mostyn said in a statement. “Another staffer was injured in the crash and is in the intensive care unit at Parkland Hospital.”

Annie’s List is a group that supports female Democratic candidates who back abortion rights for state office in Texas.

Garcia worked in various capacities for the 1992 Clinton campaign and in the administration, according to her LinkedIn profile. She went on to serve as a senior adviser at the State Department during Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s tenure. In the interim between the Clinton and Obama administrations, she was a special projects director at the advertising firm GSD&M and ran her own consulting firm, Grace Garcia & Associates.

Her most recent job was at Annie’s List.

“Grace Garcia was the passionate, tough, visionary leader we needed at Annie’s List,” Mostyn said. “The best possible tribute to her life is to continue the work Grace started on behalf of Annie’s List and women across Texas. Thoughts, prayers and privacy are appreciated at this time.”

      Jesus said, “I leave you Peace, my peace I give unto you…” before he left the earth. The Word of G-d says, “there is no peace for the wicked…”

    As Grace passes through Heaven on her way to hell, she will get a friendly wave and a finger from those babies she helped to get aborted.

    Certainly, today’s liberalism is impelled by the same death force as its marxist, socialist, and communist ancestors.

    prayers? The Lord tells us that He is the G-d of Life…satan comes to kill, steal and destroy – John 10:10.

    You cannot play with the devil and not expect to be messed up by him…

    What’s a birf certificate? Guess they didn’t teach spelling in the union-controlled public school you went to.
    Have you found the evidence Bush was involved in 9/11 yet?
