Cameraman assaulted at Dem event..

The Pennsylvania Republican Party has released video from a Joe Sestak rally that appears to show a Republican cameraman being harassed and assaulted by Sestak supporters. The event took place on Saturday in downtown Pittsburgh.

Mike Barley, Pennsylvania Republican Party communications director, spoke to Battle ‘10 about the incident. “This type of activity is completely out of line,” said Barley.

“We would certainly not condone this type of behavior at any of our events and neither should the Sestak campaign. It is clear that many of Joe Sestak’s supporters are frustrated by the campaign’s inability to get any traction in Pennsylvania, but that is no excuse to resort to physical violence.”
