It started when Grimm, who's under investigation by the Justice Department for illegal fundraising during his 2010 campaign, walked away from an on-camera interview about the State of the Union after the reporter, Michael Scotto, tried to ask him questions about the allegations.
With the camera still rolling, Grimm surges toward the reporter, who appears visibly surprised.
The second-term congressman, who's also a former Marine and former FBI agent, spoke aggressively to Scotto for about 20 seconds.
NY1 broadcast the confrontation, though it bleeped out the obscenities.
"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.

I agree that he shouldn't have threatened him. He should have simply broken him in half ... like a little boy ... and thrown him over the railing.
Now that would have shown him who's boss!!
but in typical Marine fashion this rep went over the line of acceptable behavior... He did make his point well known though for all to see.. Have to wonder what the fallout will be if any?

Wow. Good response. There's a lot of ways to consider what happened here.
I wonder if a court of law considers the act of intimidation the same thing as a direct threat.
And people are wondering why Republicans will dont have president in the next 20 years.
