An Illinois Democrat who appeared to mock to the Christmas parade tragedy in Waukesha, Wisconsin, as payback for the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse has quit her official position with the party.

Mary Lemanski resigned Monday morning from her post as social-media director of the Democratic Party of DuPage County, Illinois.

Lemanski came under fire for a series of tweets linking Friday’s acquittal of Rittenhouse to Sunday’s parade disaster which left at least five dead and 48 injured when an SUV plowed through the city’s annual Christmas parade. The suspect, 39-year-old Darrell Brooks, has a long criminal record and is now being charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide. Police say the incident is “not a terrorist event.”

“It was probably just self-defense,” Lemanski posted, with the hashtags “Wisconsin” and “KyleRittenhouse.”

“Living in Wisconsin, he probably felt threatened,” read another post referring to the SUV driver in Waukesha.

“I’m sure he didn’t want to hurt anyone,” she added. “He came to help people.”

Lemanski’s comments appeared to mock the self-defense argument made Rittenhouse and his defense attorneys during the 18-year-old’s recent trial. The jury agreed in that case, finding Rittenhouse not guilty of murder in connection with two shooting deaths in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year.
