Jacob Burris, who has served as Aden's campaign manager since late October, arrived home with his family Sunday evening, and his four children discovered the gruesome scene as they exited the family vehicle to enter their home.


Aden's campaign has said it does not suspect that anyone from the Womack camp is responsible. But the crime appears to be a "political hit." Ironically, Womack is a staunch "pro life" Republican. Someone who apparently supports Womack, however, does not have much respect for life. Here is how the Aden press release describes the ugly scene at the Burris house on Sunday night:


The family pet, an adult, mixed-breed Siamese cat, had one side of its head bashed in to the point the cat's eyeball was barely hanging from its socket. The perpetrators scrawled "liberal" across the cat's body and left it on the doorstep of Burris' house.


In the 2010 campaign, Womack received an endorsement from the Arkansas Right to Life PAC. In a press release, Womack touted his "pro life" and "family values" stances:


In a letter addressed to Womack, Arkansas Right to Life President Wayne Mays said the endorsement was a reflection of Womack's unquestionable stance to protect lives threatened by abortion or euthanasia.


"We appreciate the values by which you live, the inspiration you provide those in your community, and the courage with which you stand up for the principles in which you believe," Mays said.


Womack, the Republican nominee for United States Congress in the third district of Arkansas, said, he was pleased to receive the Arkansas Right to Life endorsement.


"Protecting the unborn is a fundamental core value rooted in conservative leadership," Womack said. "I will continue to be a pro-life advocate, as well as other family values issues that speak directly to the principles honored by most Arkansans."
