Democratic lawmakers who normally crusade for criminals are reaping what they sow.

Gunfire struck a car belonging to Missouri Rep. Cori Bush in St. Louis. She was not injured.

It is the second time the congresswoman's car has been hit by gunfire in as many years.

In June 20, 2020 Bush posted a photo on Twitter, of her Hyundai with a bullet hole in the door.

Bush is best known as a member of "The Squad" a group of six liberals in the U.S. House of Representatives who regularly advocate for defunding the police.

On Thursday, Bush released a statement on Twitter, saying her soul was shaken by the crime. She said "gun violence is all too familiar" in St. Louis, where her car was hit.

"I'm touched by everyone who has reached out. Thankfully no one was harmed. But any act of gun violence shakes your soul."

Bush expressed outrage that Fox News made light of the incident.

A Fox News host said: "Of course, we would never wish any harm whatsoever on any American, let alone a politician we disagreed with. BUT..."

Bush retweeted the quote, and wrote:

"But??? Fox News is literally out here advocating for me to face violence. I'm just gonna keep working to get justice. Y'all stay mad and be blessed."
