Rep. Cantor's Richmond Campaign Office Shot at Overnight


www.foxnews.com

Republican Rep. Eric Cantor's Richmond campaign office was shot at Wednesday night, Fox News has learned, the latest in a rash of apparent threats and acts of intimidation against members of Congress.

Most of the threats so far have been reported by Democrats, but Cantor -- the No. 2 Republican in the House -- is one of about 10 lawmakers who has asked for increased security protection, Fox News has learned. As a member of the House leadership, U.S. Capitol Police already provide Cantor with a security detail around the clock, but he has asked for more security.

Another incident in the growing list of incident since that health care legislation passed..

But this guy wasn't connected to it... he's the highest elected jew in the country.

Probably a neo-nazi did this, or an Obama supporter since this guy is a republican, or a false report aimed at growing tensions or making ``democrats and republicans`` terrorists... because let's not kid ourselves, both parties are bought and paid for.

Or somebody who hates the government as a whole or somebody who's a lunatic for any reason or a stray bullet from anywhere or he did it himself to trump up sympathy or any damn thing at all.

To even attempt the series of events which led to a moment with only the knowledge that said moment has occurred is a pretty far stretch.

For all we know it was a rock or BB.

I've been biting my tongue on a lot of these issues. Part of me feels this whole mess has been calculated to start violence. I'm hoping all of this garbage just remains isolated but, I've got a feeling the powermongers don't want that. Considering we don't know who did it, well, I do know many government workers have been caught vandalizing their own offices to get attention...

You are very smart and I think you are 100% right. We may not agree on alot but you have hit the nail on the head with this assumption. This will not end and they will use it to the max. Everything is about control why would this be any different?

Holy crap. I hope this isn't getting serious. We can only take a few more "isolated incidents" before it's time to start being very afraid.

If a black politician is killed or hurt; expect some riots, and civil unrest much like LA. We are on the brink of blood in the streets.

God help us!

how many isolated incidences are required to change the label to "movement" anyhow...3 a day...20 a day...

Isolated my arse.

Anyhow, my first impression would be for this message to be "Dems also can toss bricks and own guns". a sort of shot back at the other sides doings..any agreement here?

Fringe V Fringe.

There are a few instances I've heard of regarding these kind of things. Essentially, one frames the other side to get sympathy points. It looks like you are being attacked so people naturally feel some pity for you and decry your attackers.

I think this was a staged attack so that behind the scenes it can be a rallying cry for the lunatic fringe of the tea parties. They will say that the left is fighting them back and they are winning, this will piss the lunatics off and will make them do more extreme things.

Well, if thats the case...hopefully its about 12% of the population that will fight and die at each others hands.

that should solve the unemployment crisis.

After watching the Congressman's presser on this incident, my first leaning is towards a political stunt, since he took the opportunity to take jabs at some Democrats.

Personally, I don't believe a word that comes out of ANY of our elected representatives from ALL branches of government.

This time is no different.

They have reached the level of "cry wolf syndrome" in my mind. I sure hope the voters can Flip the Script this November and get a fresh crew in DC to start rebuilding the trust of the American people.

BTW, Cantor is the Rep from my Virginia district. Hopefully only till the end of this election cycle.

Too bad morons have to behave this way. Whoever is behind all of this really disgusts me - and I dont agree with the health bill at all.

Rep Cantor is the cousin to a very close friend of mine. Glad to hear he is ok.

They basically already have. Cantor addressed this indirectly when he commented on Democrats blaming the GOP this week for inciting these types of acts and using it to score political points.

Morons? Look no further than Rush, Sean, Savage, Beck and the right wing radio personalities that are fanning the flames of revolution and hatred of those that disagree with them. This hateful rhetoric will influence those prone to violence; it's what they want. I see it as thinly disguised racism. A conspiracy to rid America of those "useless eaters" I pray to God Almighty I'm wrong.

Who's side do you think they are on? What is their agenda? Peace?
