From Denny: OK, did anyone else find it disturbing to view a thuggish lunge attack and hear on air a series of death threats to a guy giving that Congressman some air time? Rep. Michael Grimm of New York thought it appropriate to threaten to kill a reporter on air while the cameras were rolling.
From Reuters: Grimm abruptly collared Scotto and told him, "Let me be clear to you, you ever do that to me again I'll throw you off this fucking balcony." When Scotto protested that it was a "valid question," (about an ethics investigation) Grimm replied, "No, no, you're not man enough, you're not man enough. I'll break you in half. Like a boy."
And this guy thought a mere apology was acceptable? It was a chilling display of someone completely out of control. Is this the kind of person we want in Congress?
Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) is an attorney, an ex-Marine who served in Iraq and an ex-FBI agent who was undercover infiltrating the famous wise guy Gambino Crime Family of New York before he ran for Congress.
In typical political clean-up after this weird oh, too public encounter, Grimm claimed he was upset he was not getting respect. So, now a news interview is playing out more like an episode of The Sopranos? It would be funny if this situation was not so very serious because it really was a display of the creepy ridiculous...
