    Is telling a reporter who was asking you questions about an investigation into your fund raising that "If you ever do that to me again, I'll throw you off this f***ing balcony," in front of a rolling TV camera a bit unprofessional for a sitting Congressman?

    Is his explanation that it was OK to do so because: "I expect a certain level of professionalism and respect, especially when I go out of my way to do that reporter a favor,” as he said in a later statement?

    Mr. Congressman sure looked and acted like he has something to hide.

    It's easy to see why this Congressman would expect respect.

    If you read the "Comments" at the end of the article, you'll find a bunch of people did.

    Actually it's refreshing in a way. It beats them smiling into the camera while knowing that they are throwing the country over the balcony in the distant background where no one sees or hears........

    What do you expect from a group of sociopaths?
