GOP Rep. Physically Threatens Reporter After Being Asked About Campaign Corruption (Video at Link)
Posted on 1/30/2014 6:01:40 AM by tsowellfan
Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) threatens a NY1 reporter after he is asked about campaign corruption during a post-SOTU interview.
“Let me be clear to you, you ever do that to me again I’ll throw you off this f***ing balcony,” Grimm said, according to NY1.
“It’s a valid question,” Michael Scotto, the reporter, told Grimm.
“No, no, you’re not man enough, you’re not man enough. I’ll break you in half. Like a boy,” Grimm responded.
Here is the transcript released by NY1…

Let me see – I wonder what the Freeperati reaction will be?
I’m guessing equal parts “Democrats threaten to throw reporters off the balcony all the time” and “he should have slit the reporter’s throat on camera to show he wasn’t bluffing”.
The MSM was why they ONLY focus on the GOP.

Personally, I’m glad he got in the little weasel’s face. I enjoyed the “Uh-oh” moment the “reporter” had when he realized he messed with the wrong guy.
We’re always saying how GOP folk never fight back, and then when they do, some just bemoan it.
Yes, there is a double standard. However this classless moron is probably guilty. Even if innocent he should be working in a transfer station.5 posted on 1/30/2014 6:10:42 AM by freedomfiter2 (Brutal acts of commission and yawning acts of omission both strengthen the hand of the devil.)To: tsowellfan
The best and brightest conservative are not in politics. They are out there creating wealth. That leaves the second string running for office and staying there forever.9 posted on 1/30/2014 6:21:11 AM by HChampagneTo: NFHalePersonally, I’m glad he got in the little weasel’s face.

He is the “wrong guy” for threatening to throw the reporter over the balcany, NOT because he represents our side and the media finally got “put in its place” but because this man is being probed by the FBI over a crooked fundraiser who supposedly helped Rep. Michael Grimm raise illegal funds in 2010 in exchange for the candidate’s promise to help him obtain a green card.
This congressman may or may not be guilty but to go as far as making such a threat to a civilian on camera in order to avoid discussing the issue surely does not make him look innocent.
He’s a stupid politician to say the least.
We have enough government officials from the other side threatening the opposition (ie the IRS scandal) without others from our side doing the same thing on LIVE camera.
How can we expect the House to go after those behind the IRS scandal if they also have similar skeletons in the closet.
This man could do more harm than good.27 posted on 1/30/2014 7:40:46 AM by tsowellfan (www.cafenetamerica.com)
How bad is it with the GOP these days? Bad enough that I’m thinking this guy needs to be in a leadership position. At least he has some spine.

Yeah, the GOP and its most devoted hangers-on desperately want to be the bullies beating up the rest of the world — and the reason Chris Christie has had so many bad-news days lately is because more normal people have twigged to Christie being a bully. No one likes a bully. They lose elections when people realize that bullies will treat their constituents like punching bags. So sorry, freepers.
What I don’t understand about this group is, what exactly do they want? Do they want the Federal Govt to go away? Would they be disappointed if all their heroes were elected and none of their wishes came true? None of this mattered when GWB was in office. All they bitched about were Dems. So maybe they just need someone to have as an enemy to make their life complete? FIIK. What good is a gun if you can’t kill people with it?
I suggest making the contribution through the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF), a group of patriots that McConnell hates. 100% of your contribution through SCF reaches the candidate.
Oh honey, no.
Here’s what the SCF spending categories look like: http://projects.propublica.org/lpacs/pac/senate-conservatives-fund.html.
That’s right. They spend more on entertainment than they give to candidates.
But you go right on believing that every dollar goes to the candidates. You should even raise your contribution. The strippers of DC will bless you.
Mary – you reminded me of Miss Juanita Jean with that “Oh honey”.
Or maybe Molly Ivins..
“All his (many) flaws aside, Romney’s “47%” comment was dead on. Half of the country (at least) consists of dedicated statists.”
So why aren’t they buying those one-way tickets to Somalia?
