Jeez, what just happened here?
Reporter Josh Scheinblum with a local Iowa TV station had just started an interview with Congressman Rod Blum, when, after only 1-1/2 minutes, Blum stormed out of the room.
The questions were simple, such as "Today you're having your first town hall meeting since January – what are you expecting?" and "Shouldn't all Iowans have a voice at the table?" But for some reason Blum was getting tenser and tenser. And then the question that made him snap: "Would you still take donations from a Republican?"
"I'm done...this is ridiculous," the fragile Congressman said.
The schoolchildren surrounding Blum were brought there per his request. Great role model, Blum!
