Etheridge is a Democrat. Laws don’t apply to Democrats. In fact a Democrat Representative used a cane to beat another Representative bloody when the two were actually in the House floor. The Democrat did not get punished for that, and he sent the other guy to the hospital. So the Democrats have plenty of historical precident for a “boys will be boys” attitude and not even give the guy a wrist slap.

Assault, my ass. Anybody who calls that an assault has never been involved in or seen a REAL assault. The Congressman was probably trying to kiss the kid.

This isn’t going away because of a lame apology, IMO.

He’s disgusting, but the people who are going to rush to his defense are even more disgusting.

Censure, first. He should then resign. He should then be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, and THEN he should do jail time.

What an amazingly arrogant ‘representative’ — and I use the word loosely. These folks work for US?

But the congressman was taunted beyond human endurance by
right wing terrorists. Put Brietbart (sp?) on the list of terrorist organizations.
Look at what they did to the humanitarians at Acorn.

As I’ve said before, for Dems to bring down another Dem, no amount of evidence is sufficient. For them to bring down a Republican, no amount of evidence is necessary.

Maybe start giving him a breathalyzer before he enters the Capitol Building. I suspect a little boozing. What a disgusting, violent human being.

Laws don’t apply to Democrats.

Laws are for the little people.

How do you get to “hostile” from “a little broad, a little vague”? There wasn’t anything hostile about it. The only hostility in evidence at all came from Etheridge. The students were well-mannered and respectful, both in their words and in demeanor. They did not chase him down or ambush him. It was a simple question, respectfully posed, and Etheridge *chose* to interpret it as hostile—for reasons undoubtedly connected to alcohol and the latest Obama approval polls.

What in the world???? This congresscritter easily could have kept walking and ignored these kids if he didn’t want to talk to them but apparently, he wanted to act like a total creep. It was bad enough that he grabbed the guy’s phone and hand, but when he grabbed him by the neck and pulled him in close...I thought the kid was gonna get Barney Franked!!

Of course, what he really wanted to say was....”Do you know who I am and who do you think you are???”
