It’s time for Eric Cantor to go before the cameras and answer questions about this:
Richmond police say the bullet that hit a window of Republican Virginia Congressman Eric Cantor’s office had been randomly fired skyward.
Amid reports of threats and vandalism against Democrats who voted Sunday for sweeping health care reforms, Cantor said at a Washington news conference Thursday that a bullet was fired into his Richmond office.
In a news release, Richmond police said that the bullet had been fired into the air early Tuesday. It hit the front window of a building that houses Cantor’s campaign office as it fell to back earth at a sharp angle.
The round landed on the floor of the office a foot inside a broken window pane. No one was in the building, and police say an investigation has yielded no suspects.
A randomly fired bullet is NOT the same as someone smashing a window. One is targeted and one is an accident from a random act. Just the same as it is NOT the same as going to the home of a member of Congress (oops – he don’t live there anymore) and cutting a gas line.
All Eric Cantor did today was go before the cameras and help validate the acts of violence against Democrats. This is what happens when you have a party without leadership. The Republicans need a real leader to stand up and say “stop it and stop it now” and they need to show unity by doing it along side Democratic leaders.
