NEW YORK – In a bizarre turn of events, the YouTube website of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords suggests she subscribed to the YouTube channel of her suspected attempted assassin, Jarred Loughner, at some point before the shooting incident.
Given YouTube rules, for Giffords to subscribe to Loughner’s YouTube channel would have required an affirmative action taken by Giffords or by someone with access to her YouTube username and password to establish the subscription link.
Loughner’s YouTube subscription channel under the username “Classitup10″ was created on Oct. 25, 2010, and his last two videos were posted to the channel on Dec. 15, 2010, approximately three weeks before the shooting.
While it is now known that Loughner worked for Gifford’s election campaign in 2007, that Gifford subscribed to Loughner’s website since Oct. 25, 2010, suggests the two may have been in contact more recently.
Oddly, the only other YouTube channel Giffords subscribed to was that of former Rep. Ike Skelton, D-Mo., who lost his seat in November to Republican challenger Vicky Hartzler.
The profile of Loughner’s YouTube website shows he created his subscription channel on October 25, 2010.
“Was Loughner added after the shooting?” asked a commentary at Atlas Shrugs. “If not, it is creepy and weird. Really weird.”
A cached version of the Giffords website, dated Dec. 26, shows there was no link to the suspect’s channel on that date, giving rise to speculation that the site was changed after that point, or possibly even hacked.

And the second half:
The Wall Street Journal also reported in Loughner’s home was found a form letter from Giffords’ office, thanking him for attending a 2007 event.
Today he was charged with two counts of murder, two counts of attempted murder and a count of trying to kill a member of Congress.
