Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) said he didn't think the sheriff's words "had any part in a law enforcement briefing." Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) said he was "disappointed" in the sheriff. Conservative talk show host Neal Boortz said Dupnik was looking for political gain, and Fox News anchor -- in an interview with the sheriff -- wondered aloud why he would "inject political speculation" into the story.

They all argued that Jared Loughner, the suspected shooter, is a "madman" and that politics had nothing to do with the shooting.
