It's Not Just the "Occasional Nut" Getting Violent

Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA) really doesn't like to answer questions, and is more than happy to let his thugs beat citizens asking about tax policy:

On Friday, two Feder staffers approached Congressman Wolf in a public location to ask him some questions. Two different individuals who were accompanying Congressman Wolf (staffers? relatives? friends?) assaulted the Feder staffers, as you can see quite clearly in the video. The first Feder staffer was hit with a cane and then punched. The second staffer (as you will see on the video) was pinned to a wall and forcibly held there. All of this took place in the presence of Congressman Wolf, who stood by and did nothing to intervene.

Note: this is a "moderate" Republicon. He's supposedly not in thrall to the batshit sane elements of the party. Yet he seems to enjoy the violence just as much.

This should be a career-ender. I hope Judy Feder takes that cocksucker down. You do not, in a civilized society, tacitly encourage your hangers-on to beat citizens in your presence. These fucking thugs need to understand that there are consequences for such behavior.

Virginia. Do the right thing.
