Pop star BRITNEY SPEARS should be shot - according to the wife of a leading American politician.

KENDEL EHRLICH, the wife of Maryland Governor ROBERT EHRLICH, has joked that the formerly virginal singer should be killed for her new scantily clad image - as she is setting a bad example to her young fans.

She told a domestic violence seminar at the state's Hood College, Frederick, last Friday (03OCT03), "Really, if I had an opportunity to shoot Britney Spears, I think I would."
