Democratic Congressman Assaults College Student UPDATE: Meet "Slugger" Etheridge's Opponent

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that the actions of Democrat Bob Etheridge of North Carolina fit the definition of assault.

The Congressman says he has a right to know who these two college kids are. Um, no. Actually, they do have the right to do exactly what they did, the Congressman can even look that up.

Etheridge is no doubt a little cranky about being tied to the Obama agenda because, well, it's killing him. Especially on health care, which he wound up voting for despite what his district was telling him.

In Etheridge’s district 47% of voters said they’d be less likely to vote for him this fall if he supported the bill. And 47% said they’d be less likely to vote for him this fall if the Democrats in Congress passed the bill, regardless of how Etheridge himself voted.

I hope these kids file charges.

BTW- Am I the only one surprised to find out that a Congressman who voted for ObamaCare is actually a violent tea bagger? Big tent indeed.

Update: Bob "Hands Of Furry" Etheridge has himself an opponent, Renee Ellmers. I'm not saying you should vote for her because she's a nurse and an attractive woman. That would be wrong. I'm saying vote for her because she calls ObamaCare,, um, ObamaCare on her website and seems to be solidly on the conservative side down the line.

Her campaign really needs to use this Etheridge video in a spot. Start with him saying "Who are you" and then cut to voters saying they live in the district and are upset with his votes on issue a,b,c, then show the Who Are You? bit and have Ellmers say, "I'm Renee Ellmers and I approve this message because it's time we send a conservative to Washington who will fight the Pelosi/Obama agenda, not citizens who ask questions".

Thanks to "mrp" for putting me some information on Ellmers.
