Frustration boiling over
Democrats are getting really punchy.
Elizabeth Warren’s “cab driver” attacked a videographer the other day, and a week ago a Democratic candidate in Virginia-05 took the law into his own hands as well, via NBC29:
Eight seconds of video from a General John Douglass political event in Farmville earlier this month is bubbling up into the 5th District congressional race Thursday night.
In the video Douglass, the Democratic candidate, swats at a cameraman recording at the public event. The Douglass campaign says even though the event was open to the public, their candidate was trying to have a private conversation with a voter.
Douglass claimed he “swatted” the videographer because he was trying to have a private conversation (in the middle of a crowded area?):
“We regret that these things happen, but you know, it was a situation where we were trying to keep him out of a private conversation and it was one of his trackers, and that lady wanted to talk to me about some private issues,” said Douglass.
John Douglass, who are you?
