Ga. Congressman Barry Loudermilk, wife recovering following car accident

WASHINGTON — The office of Congressman Barry Loudermilk said the two-term Republican and his wife are recovering from non-life-threatening injuries after a car accident near Knoxville, Tenn., on Tuesday.

Loudermilk and his wife Desiree were driving on I-40 on the way back to Washington, D.C. early on Tuesday morning when their car was struck from behind by a second vehicle, which caused their car to veer off the road and flip multiple times, according to the lawmaker’s office. The car eventually landed on its passenger side.

The pair was transported to the hospital with non-threatening injuries, Loudermilk’s office said, before being treated and released. They are returning to Georgia for follow-up treatment.

“The Loudermilks immediately acknowledged God’s hand in protecting them from serious injury, and they would appreciate your thoughts and prayers as they recover,” the Republican’s office said in a statement.

The duo had been on the way back to Capitol Hill ahead of this evening’s House votes after waiting out Hurricane Irma from Georgia over the weekend.

Loudermilk’s colleagues tweeted words of support on Tuesday afternoon:

An Air Force veteran, former Georgia senator and small business owner, Loudermilk has represented Georgia’s 11th Congressional District — which includes Cherokee and Bartow counties, as well as slices of Cobb and Fulton — since 2015, after he defeated former U.S. Rep. Bob Barr to succeed Phil Gingrey.

The Cassville resident is among the most conservative members of Georgia’s congressional delegation and campaigned as a strict constitutionalist. An early member of the House Freedom Caucus, Loudermilk quietly left the group earlier this year. He has focused much of his recent work on financial services issues and cutting back regulatory red tape.

Tuesday’s accident marks the second traumatizing event that Loudermilk has been involved in this year. He was on the scene in Alexandria, Va., in June when a shooter opened fire on a Republican baseball practice ahead of the annual congressional baseball game.

Loudermilk had been standing near home plate and warming up to bat when the alleged perpetrator, a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, began firing.

“If we hadn’t had those policemen out there it would have been a massacre,” Loudermilk said in an interview the day of the shooting. “God was there protecting us.”

Screw him, karma. Who cares about Barry? He doesn’t care about me and this Equifax debacle: ”Congressional Republicans are pushing legislation introduced by Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.) that sides with the credit reporting companies. Loudermilk’s bill would place a $500,000 cap on punitive damages for consumers who have been wronged. In an ironic twist, the House Financial Services Committee held a hearing on Loudermilk’s bill on Thursday ― the same day Equifax revealed the breach of consumer data.”

Why are comments open for a story like this?  AJC is stirring the pot.

@Laurie8750 AJC. tries to encourage people to think. Unlike some media…..Fox….Breitbart….InfoWars….Russian Today….that tries to tell people….what to think.

@Laurie8750  Because he just introduced legislation protecting his buddies at Equifax, that’s why.

Since AJC won’t run a story on it:
Seattle’s Democrat mayor is resigning after a FIFTH molestation victim came forward.
So, Democrats can have 4 before anyone bats an eye.
Hey, he did “Fight For Fifteen”.

@Bill66 Well… To be fair… Cherokee County is a little CLOSER to the AJC than Seattle Washington.

@Allenhouse534 He’s a jerk because he’s making that kind of post on a story about people being hurt in a traffic crash.  And don’t give me the BS about religion being open to inquiry.  Show some class and empathy for the people who were hurt.
