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

As many of you are no doubt aware, Democratic Congressman Bob Etheridge is in the news for assaulting a student who asked him a question. Here’s the video of the incident that’s turning up all over the place.

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. No matter how intrusive and partisan our politics can become, this does not justify a poor response. I have and I will always work to promote a civil public discourse.

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.

I reached out to Renee Ellmers’ campaign and they have released their FIRST written statement about the incident to Right Wing News. Here’s what Renee Ellmers has to say,

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.
