Rep. Michael Grimm Threatens Reporter
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Congressman Michael Grimm explains he was annoyed. He went on live TV to comment on the State of the Union speech. At the end, the reporters started to ask about a problem with one of Grimm's campaign contributors. Grimm stormed off. The camera was still on when he returned and said: I'll break you in half. Later, Grimm called the reporter disrespectful. Then again, I'd never heard of his campaign trouble until he so dramatically declined to address it.
