Dublin, CA—One of Gerald Ford’s Would-be killers walked out of prison today after spending over 32 years behind bars. It was September 22, 1975 when Sarah Jane Moore raised her five shot .38 caliber, Smith & Wesson Model 60 revolver, aimed and got one round off as a disabled former Marine interfered with Moore’s attempt grappling with her. Secret service agents quickly took Moore into custody.
Mooer hated Ford for his pardoning of former President Richard Nixon. Moore was influenced by far Left political idealisms.
Less than three weeks earlier, a Charles Manson follower, Lynette “Squeaky” Fromm tried killing Ford with a Model 1911 Colt .45 semi-automatic pistol. Thankfully Fromm was unfamiliar with her weapon and secret service agents stopped her before she could fire any rounds. Fromm is still in prison today.
Sarah Jane Moore is 77 years-old now and has denounced her actions long ago. My bet is that Moore lives her life out peacefully. After spending so long in prison adjusting to living in a free society today may well be the biggest challenge of her life.
