NY Democrat Calls for Presidential Assassination

New York, New York - 220 miles outside the Beltway

From WNBC:

State Comptroller Alan Hevesi publicly apologized... for a "beyond dumb" remark about a fellow Democrat putting "a bullet between the president's eyes."


According to a videotape of the speech, Hevesi said:

"The man who, how do I phrase this diplomatically, who will put a bullet between the president's eyes if he could get away with it. The toughest senator, the best representative. A great, great member of the Congress of the United States."

Hevesi is beyond "beyond dumb." Prompt resignation followed by an investigation would be appropriate.
Hevesi said he hadn't been in touch with the White House but he hoped his apology reached President Bush.
Perhaps the Secret Service will pass it on.
"Threats against the president are no joke, and this incident raises real concerns about Alan Hevesi's fitness to hold public office," GOP Comptroller nominee J. Christopher Callaghan said during his acceptance speech at the Republican state convention in Hempstead, N.Y.
