‘Drunk’ mother slammed daughter into wall repeatedly after she incorrectly read Bible verses: report

Published

on

A Middletown, Pennsylvania girl under the age of 13 was beaten by her mother and kicked out of her home after her mother told her that she incorrectly recited Bible verses.

Police announced Thursday that they are filing aggravated assault against a child, strangulation and terroristic threats against Rhonda Kemp Shoffner, 41, PennLive reported. The young girl told police that the mother had been drunk for three days and she had called family members for help. None of the family members would answer the calls, however. Shortly after, the girl’s mother told the girl to kneel in the bathroom.

The victim told police that she begged her mother, “please don’t hit me. I don’t want to get on my knees.” The mother was allegedly enraged and yelled at the girl “to get on her f*cking knees,” according to police. The mother then ordered the girl to repeat Bible verses verbatim.

“What did God tell the man to do with his son?” Shoffner asked her daughter.

The girl said, “God said to forgive his son.”

Shoffner said the answer was, “God told the man to kill his son.” She then allegedly grabbed the girl by the hair and slammed her into the wall. Each incorrect answer garnered the same result for a total of five times, police said.

At one point, Shoffner told her, “I’m gonna kill you (expletive),” and began to strangle the girl.

Fearing for her life, the girl bit her mother’s arm and shoulder. At that point, the mother told the girl to “leave and don’t ever come back.”

She took a phone, coat and shoes and ran. She called her father who then drove her to the police station.

This isn’t the first time, however. Police responded to a domestic dispute Feb. 10 after neighbors reported hearing banging and arguing. No one answered the door when police knocked and as police began pounding and demanding she “open up.” A half-naked Shoffner then leaned out of a second-floor window and screamed obscenities at the officers. According to police reports, she told officers if they came through her door she “got something for us.”

There was no victim at the scene once officers were able to make their way inside, however. She was ultimately charged with open lewdness and disorderly conduct.

Republican Kevin McCarthy gets taken down by former top GOP colleague

Published

on

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was attacked by a former Republican colleague who alleged McCarthy and his fellow members of Congress have allowed the House GOP to become the official shill for the White House.

In a profile for the New York Times, former Oversight Committee Chairman Tom Davis (R-VA) shamed the GOP House for the way that a once-respectable institution has fallen.

“Congress no longer operates as an independent branch of government, but as an appendage of the executive branch,” said Davis. “He is made for that role.”

Former senator reveals to Maddow how one brave Democrat can reveal key document in impeachment trial

Published

on

Near the end of Wednesday's impeachment trial, Chief Justice John Roberts announced that an agreement had been made to allow senators to read supplemental testimony from Vice President Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams.

The document will remain classified, despite claims that there is no classified material in the document, only evidence that is damning to the president.

"In terms of this document potentially being improperly classified, which is something that has been raised in writing by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and raised on the floor of the Senate tonight by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA)," MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow noted. "Obviously, it was the vice president's office that said it was classified, they are getting publicly criticized for that. If it has been improperly classified and it should be something that the public can see, who adjudicates that?"

Florida Republican Matt Gaetz admits Trump’s legal defense was ‘like an 8th grade book report’ — only worse

Published

on

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) admitted that President Donald Trump's team of lawyers weren't quite the legal eagles that he thinks they might be, said Politico reporter Andrew Desiderio.

Questioned about his take on the way the case is unfolding in the Senate, Gaetz said that the House presented it like it was going to be on "cable news." For many that may be an insult, but it appears to Gaetz that was a compliment.

Desiderio said that Gaetz then lamented that the White House presented their case more like “an 8th-grade book report.”
