Three Allen staffers tackle (really) a constituent asking Allen, “Why did you spit on your first wife?”
(And just for your own head-shaking amusement, check out this press report after you’ve watched the video. Your media in action . . .)
Update: Mike Stark (the constituent that was attacked) has a letter up at the web site of the local television station that captured the incident on tape.)
Further: The Washington Post redefines “heckling” as someone asking questions. And from the WP report, I’m getting the idea that the Charlottesville police aren’t going to be a lot of help:
“Charlottesville Police Lt. Gary Pleasants said Stark reported the incident today and indicated he wanted to press assault charges against the men. Pleasants said police are investigating and trying to determine the names of the Allen staffers involved.
“We will find out who the people are, give him the information and he can go to the magistrate and try to obtain a warrant for them,” Pleasants said.”
