Exclusive To Right Wing News: Bob Etheridge’s Opponent, Renee Ellmers, Responds To His Assault On A Student Film Crew

Etheridge has already issued an apology for his odd and violent behavior.
I have seen the video posted on several blogs. I deeply and profoundly regret my reaction and I apologize to all involved. Throughout my many years of service to the people of North Carolina, I have always tried to treat people from all viewpoints with respect.

One of the reasons Etheridge may have apologized so quickly is because he’s in a +3 Republican district and has a credible challenger,: : : : : Renee Ellmers.
If a teacher or principal treated a student this way — it would raise serious questions and he would be suspended. This kind of behavior is equally unacceptable in a Congressman. Bob Etheridge needs to make a full, complete and candid public explanation for this behavior. His describing his behavior as “a poor response” is not adequate. Most important of all, Congressman Etheridge should apologize — in person — to the two students.
