The republicans are losing their minds!
It's a bit hard to make out what the distinguished gentleman from Staten Island is saying to Scotto, but here are the key bits, courtesy of NY1:
Grimm: "Let me be clear to you, you ever do that to me again I'll throw you off this f-----g balcony."Later, Grimm released a statement in which he failed to apologize, generally blamed the whole thing on the pesky unprofessional reporter, and sort of hinted towards more physical threats to come:
Scotto: "Why? I just wanted to ask you..."
Grimm: "If you ever do that to me again..."
Scotto: "Why? Why? It’s a valid question." [[cross talk]]
Grimm: "No, no, you're not man enough, you're not man enough. I'll break you in half. Like a boy."
"I was extremely annoyed because I was doing NY1 a favor by rushing to do their interview in lieu of several other requests...I verbally took the reporter to task and told him off, because I expect a certain level of professionalism and respect especially when I go out of my way to do that reporter a favor. I doubt that I am the first Member of Congress to tell off a reporter, and I am certain I won't be the last."
and locally Rep. Sinicki shared this letter with us(from an anonymous coward) with us:
They are unhinged all over this country!
It leaves me trying to figure out what their 2014 campaign slogan will be:
* Do what we say or else!
* It wasn't me!
* When a Republican does it ....it's not against the law!
* LOOK ---- Over there!
* 1814 all over again!
* We didn't gerrymander because you love us!
* The GOP path to desparity!
Let's help these guys out, what is your suggestion for the republicans 2014 campaign slogan? They need all the help they can get!
