Congressman Michael Grimm threatens an NY1 reporter
FRESNO, California (KFSN) -- Representative Michael Grimm of Staten Island threatened NY1 Political Reporter Michael Scotto at the conclusion of an interview following Tuesday night's State of the Union address.
"Let me be clear to you: If you ever do that to me again, I'll throw you off this f***ing balcony," Grimm said.
Scotto replied that he was just trying to ask "a valid question."
"No, no. You're not man enough, you're not man enough. I'll break you in half, like a boy," Grimm replied.
Grimm issued a statement afterwards saying he was annoyed because he claims he was doing the NY1 reporter a favor by rushing to do the interview in lieu of several other requests.
The NY1 political director is demanding an apology from him saying the behavior is unacceptable.
