Catherine Crabill, a homeschooling mom and realtor who says "our Second Amendment rights were to guard against tyranny" and believes that the U.S. government was responsible for the Oklahoma City bombing, is challenging incumbent Republican U.S. Congressman Rob Wittman.
When contacted by the Washington Post in 2009, Crabill also defended remarks she made 15 years ago about the Oklahoma City bombing being orchestrated by the U.S. Federal government. Crabill was a member of "a militia known as the New Mexico Citizens Action Association", and had told the Washington Times "this heinous act of violence was the work of our government," which will "use it as an excuse to aggressively attack the growing militia movement across the country."
"But Crabill also reiterated her view yesterday that the U.S. government was behind the Oklahoma City bombing, saying her views found support in a report by retired Brig. General Benton K. Pardin arguing that on the April 1995 bombing could not have happened without the assistance of internally placed demolition charges. She said the idea of her own government deliberately killing its citizens seemed farfetched even to her until the tragedy at Waco and the violent confrontation with Randy Weaver at Ruby Ridge in the 1990s."It would have been unbelievable if we hadn't seen [former Attorney General] Janet Reno destroy all those innocent people in Waco," Crabill said."
