Tucson, CD8, AZ: When it comes to Gabrielle Giffords, let us face some facts....Giffords needs to do the right thing for herself and for CD8. She needs to step down, focus on her recovery, and allow CD8 to be represented by someone who is capable of performing the necessary duties. I know many of you are offended by what you just read. But, the fact that you may find this offensive does nothing to alter that this is the truth. All it does is hinder your ability to accept it as such.
