Domestic Violence Lobbyist Kills Husband

File this under truth is stranger then fiction. A 45-year-old woman killed her 26-year-old husband after just five days of marital bliss. Her occupation is as a lobbyist speaking against domestic violence. The shooting itself was strange since the woman dressed in a robe with a shower cap and calmly walked up to her beloved on a downtown street and shot him.
A 45-year-old woman, charged with ending a domestic dispute by killing her 26-year-old husband of five days, is a registered lobbyist for a group fighting domestic violence.

Arelisha Bridges was ordered held without bond in the Fulton County Jail. She is scheduled for a preliminary hearing later this month on charges of felony murder, murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Officials said Bridges claimed she was unemployed. But records show she is a lobbyist for an organization called the National Declaration for Domestic Violence Order; its Web site says the group is pushing legislation to create a database of those convicted of sex crimes or domestic abuse.
I blame Al Gore and all of the snow we have been getting around here lately.
