Skip to comments.Did Steny Hoyer punch his Republican opponent? (Yes, twice)

Two videos at link.
In Maryland's Fifth Congressional District, long-time incumbent congressman and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer attended a forum with Republican challenger Charles Lollar on Monday, October 18th. You can see from the first video that Hoyer wasn't pleased with Lollar's response to the current question (starts at 2:47 in the video). In fact, Hoyer has some words with Lollar that are inaudible because Hoyer's microphone is off.
Later that day I received word from someone in attendance that after the forum concluded Hoyer punched Lollar in the back. The person said that Lollar turned to Hoyer and brushed it off. Once again Hoyer punched Lollar in the back and Lollar turned and the two exchanged words. Lollar held a press conference on Tuesday October 19th where a reporter who witnessed Hoyer punching Lollar questions Lollar about the incident. Lollar indeed confirmed Hoyer punched him, not once, but twice. And in the exchange Hoyer said to Lollar, "I'm coming after you."
The question from the reporter starts at 4:55 into the video. Also, notice how Lollar responds to the situation.

When confronted with truth and the facts, the Left can only resort to violence.
I’m only guessing but I believe Loller could mop the floor with hoyer if he chose to.
He's obviously suffering from dementia.
I didn’t watch the video, but let me guess: The “punch” was probably not really a punch.
Some people will do anything to get a blog hit.
Lollar is a thoughtful and good guy.
Hoyer is a snake.
Once is more than enough reason to beat his ass down in public. JMO though.
Sounds like assault and a credible threat of bodily harm to me. I would seek a restraining order. :)
If I am not mistaken, Lollar told Hoyer not to hit him. So, I think it actually was a punch.
As to Hoyer being a “flaccid old white man,” as one poster said earlier, I knew Steny back when he was a young white man. So, I can assure you he has always been flaccid. Not a fiber of muscle in his entire body, then or now.
He wouldn’t have gotten a second chance...............
I believe you’re wrong.
Some group, not Lollar, needs to put this stuff in an ad and make sure it gets to the black neighborhoods. Portray it as whitey gets mad when a black man gets uppity and doesn’t know his place. An old, patronizing white man hitting a black man should draw outrage from the blacks.
Was Hoyer trying bait Lollar into a physical response so he could have Sheriff Roscoe throw him into the local jail until after the election? There are probably a lot more things that Hoyer has in common with Boss Hogg.
Amen! The repubs need to start punching back. It seems Cheney was the only one with any balls.
Hoyer should appoligize.
What really enrages me is times like this that expose the Dems lack of standards.
