Congressman Bob Etheridge who assaulted student finally concedes NC-2 race to Renee Ellmers
After acting like a baby and demanding a recount, Democrat Bob Etheridge has lost AGAIN, and has finally decided to concede the race for North Carolina’s 2nd Congressional district House seat to Republican challenger Renee Ellmers. You remember Bob Etheridge don’t you? He’s the one who physically assaulted a student on a Washington DC street back in July, and kept saying “Who are you?”
Etheridge WAS a six-term Congressman and released a whiny, snotty statement announcing his decision (From CNN):
“Now, the election recount has concluded, and the numbers confirm that despite the incredible support we had – and neither candidate getting to 50% – in the end we came up just a little too short. The combination of the national tide that swept the country, massive amounts of secret corporate cash funding a campaign of distortions, and dirty politics by Washington, DC partisan operatives was just too much to overcome,” Etheridge said in the statement, with a swipe at the tone of a campaign season where mud slinging was paramount.
Bye bye jackwagon. Now if someone sees Etheridge on the street, maybe they’ll say to him WHO ARE YOU?
