Both Dan and I wrote yesterday about the deplorable action of newly confirmed Republican House member Doug Bruce in kicking a photographer who tried to take his picture.Republican leaders have joined in the condemnation of Bruce's actions:
"Violence towards anyone, on the House floor or on the street, anywhere - it's atrocious, it's inappropriate, I don't know how many negative words I can say towards that," House Minority Leader Mike May said. "This isn't over. We're exploring what the appropriate response is as a body."May issued a letter of apology to Rocky photographer Javier Manzano, after Bruce refused to apologize. "This situation was unprecedented in our history and leadership on both sides of the aisle is committed to ensuring that it never happens again," the letter said.
