Etheridge Video – Palin Targeting Rep.Etheridge, for ‘Turning Violent’

Posted on August 19, 2010


Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) rolled out a new slate of endorsements of Republican women on her Facebook page Wednesday, including congressional candidate Renee Ellmers in North Carolina.

Ellmers gained some brief national attention earlier this summer after a video surfaced of her opponent, Rep. Bob Etheridge (D), in an altercation with a student on a street near the U.S. Capitol.

Palin references the incident in her endorsement of Ellmers, writing, “Renee has an uphill battle against a truly out of touch incumbent who made news not too long ago when he was caught on video assaulting a student who asked him if he supported the Obama agenda.”

Palin continues: “Simple enough question, but this Democrat congressman who’s been in Washington for 14 years turned violent rather than answer it.” (more…)   by Publius   From the Hill:
