Liberal Rep Jim Moran (D-VA) Shouts Down Disabled Vet at Town Hall; ‘Sit Down or Leave’

(Breitbart.tv) - Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) shows his temper with a veteran at a Town Hall meeting last night (April 7). Utilizing typical tactics he questions the validity of the man's claim of military service and calls the gentleman's question "caustic". When his constituent objects to being characterized in such a way, the Congressman shouts over him and tells him to sit down.

"Caustic"?? It's not like the man claimed that pro-Israel forces pushed us into the Iraq War... Oh, wait a second... that was Rep. Moran who made that claim and was rebuked by his own colleagues for it.
