Representative Paul Broun (R-GA): ‘Violent Statements are Unacceptable’

Washington–(ENEWSPF)–Feb 25 – U.S. Representative Paul Broun, M.D. (GA-10) today released the following statement in response to comments from a constituent at his town hall meeting:

“Tuesday night at a town hall meeting in Oglethorpe County, Georgia an elderly man asked the abhorrent question, “Who’s going to shoot Obama?”  I was stunned by the question and chose not to dignify it with a response; therefore, at that moment I moved on to the next person with a question.  After the event, my office took action with the appropriate authorities.  I deeply regret that this incident happened at all.  Furthermore, I condemn all statements—made in sincerity or jest—that threaten or suggest the use of violence against the President of the United States or any other public official.  Such rhetoric cannot and will not be tolerated.”
