White House Staffer Shoots At Boyfriend

There is one thing, well, one of many things that has always baffled me about people. No matter what race we are, what sex we are, how educated we are or what our station is in society, we all allowed ourselves to be "driven crazy" by the opposite sex at one time or another. People have sacrificed their careers, their life's work, their families, and even their sanity for someone else. Whether the motivation is sex, or obsession, it is still crazy and almost waysresults in disaster.
Case in point, a White House staffer has been placed on unpaid leave after she reportedly threatened her boyfriend with a gun during an argument about other women.

Barvetta Singletary, 37, who serves as a special assistant to the president and House legislative affairs liaison, confronted her boyfriend, a U.S. Capitol Police officer, with his service weapon on Friday.

Charging documents allege that after Singletary's boyfriend arrived at her Upper Marlboro, Md., home, the two sat inside his car. She confronted him about seeing other women and demanded to see his cellphone. When the man refused to give her the cellphone, Singletary reportedly reached into the man's bag and took "two cellphones and the victim's .40-caliber Glock 23 service weapon".

Singletary reportedly ran into the home while the man followed asking for his guns. Singletary allegedly refused to give the weapons back until he gave her the passwords to both cell phones.

According to the arrest warrant, Singletary took one of the weapons out of its holster and told the man, "You taught me how to use this. Don't think I won't use it."

When the man refused to give up the passwords to his phone, Singletary reportedly stated, "Your phone is more important than me holding the gun on you," before allegedly turning and firing a shot near him into a sofa where he was sitting.

The man ran from the house and called 911. According to authorities, he reported that he saw Singletary wiping the gun down with a towel as he was leaving.

Singletary was arrested at her home and charged with domestic violence. A White House spokesperson said that Singletary's presidential access has been revoked.

Singletary's actions have undoubtedly ruined her career. Her life long aspirations have been turned to ruin all because of one bad decision on one night.




  1. This is something that she will regret for the rest of her life. She was intelligent and trustworthy enough to thrive in the halls of THE SEAT of political power of this country and LOST HER MIND. She lost her mind because she lost sight of who SHE was. She took her eyes off the Prize. In my opinion, The Prize is the gift that the Almighty Universal Creator grants to each of us through constant communication and interaction with THE SPIRIT--THE SOURCE. However, she can recoup if she rededicates herself.

  2. True, and well said as always!
