California Rep Charged with Assault in Airport Incident

Rep. Bob Filner (D-CA) is being charged with assault and battery for an incident at Dulles International Airport that appears to stem from a lost baggage claim and a sissy of a security guard.

According to Roll Call, Filner walked past a security guard and into a restricted area of the baggage claim area and then refused to leave. In pushing past the guard, the congressman "pushed aside the employee's outstretched arm," which is evidently a Class 1 misdemeanor punishable by up to 12 months in jail and/or a $2,500 fine under Virginia code.

Cynthia McKinney has called all parties involved "a bunch of pussies."




What a dumbass... I'm not saying the potential punishment fits the crime, but everybody knows you don't mess around at the airport, even if you're a congressman. Hell, especially if you're a congressman - these guys fly all the time. It doesn't take long to learn the ropes if you've flown more than 2 times in your life. Dumbass...
