Who's That Girl?

Starbucks customer favors U.S. Congresswoman

If you didn't know any better, one might say this lovely lady pictured below looks a lot like former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle 'Gabby' Giffords.

Giffords represented Arizona's 8th congressional district from 2007 until her resignation on January 25, 2012, after having survived an attack on her life when she was shot in a mall parking lot while speaking to a group of her constituents.

We spotted the Giffords look-a-like (including the eyeglasses) while she was having coffee in a university Starbucks and immediately noticed the resemblance.

She told us her name is 'Valerie', and to our surprise said no one had ever told her she looked like Gabby Giffords.

"A younger Hillary [Clinton], but not Giffords", she said.

"Oh, you do look like her!", exclaimed one of the women in her party, after making the connection.

We asked if we could take her picture and she was kind enough to grant our request.

Thank you, Valerie.

Take a look at the two, and decide.  See any resemblance?
