Dem lawmaker issues non-apology after gruesome comment about slain woman

After far-left state Rep. Liz Thomson (D-Bernalillo) made a gruesome comment about a 21-year-old Santa Fe woman’s brutal slaying, she issued a non-apology via Twitter late Wednesday. Piñon Post exclusively broke the story about Thomson’s comments. 

Grace Jennings appeared to have been fatally stabbed multiple times with a sword by Isaac Apodaca, 25, and his girlfriend, Kiara McCulley, 19. Jennings’ neck “appeared to have injuries consistent with attempts to decapitate,” according to criminal complaints filed in the Santa Fe County Magistrate Court. 

Instead of grieving the brutal murder of the young woman, state Rep. Liz Thomson claimed the gruesome slaughter could be a “QANON” distraction, referring to an anonymous group known to be demeaned by the left for promoting theories about political events.

The flagrant comments prompted the Republican Party of New Mexico to demand Thomson apologize. 

“This tweet is extremely offensive and shameful, and Rep. Thomson has acted beneath the dignity of her state office,” said Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Steve Pearce. “The Democratic Party is obligated to condemn this tweet and speak out about this unqualified candidate. It would be unspeakable to accept this tweet on any level, and the DPNM must take responsibility.” 

On Wednesday, Thomson’s statement on the matter read, “I responded to a tragic story in a now deleted tweet. I realize that this response came off as insensitive.I was alarmed by details in the story and commenting on the dangers of conspiracy theories. Deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of this soul lost too soon.” She did mention once the words “I’m sorry” or “I apologize.”

But in the same breath as her non-apology, Thomson liked and thanked a commenter on her statement who said, “You’re ok, Liz. You don’t deserve their deceitful, manufactured outrage.” 

Thomson has also refused to apologize for other statements, such as those comparing police officers to the Ku Klux Klan and calling concerned parents “low IQ,” among other jabs.

The Democratic Party of New Mexico has not yet responded in a statement condemning Thomson’s insensitive comment. 

As of Wednesday, only KRQE News 13 picked up the story in a 25-second segment on the station.

  1. Skin suits like her simply don’t care about human life. Human suffering is just a joke to them. Can you imagine this sick empty skin suits raising children.
