I guess this is the political version of "when keepin' it real goes wrong."
Sorry, Representative Bob Etheridge, of North Carolina, assaulting students with cameras on the streets is a jailable offense. Resign now, and turn yourself in to authorities. I don't care what party affiliation you are.
Maybe the students won't "press" charges.
(HT: The Daily Dish - which means I heard about this through two sources considered the "liberal" media.)
