A Republican state senator from Idaho was caught on camera recently yelling at a constituent whom he decried as a “liberal nut-tard.”
Via Wonkette, the Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports that Idaho State Sen. Dan Foreman was attending the Latah County Fair last month when he was confronted by a constituent who criticized the way that he did his job.
Foreman reacted angrily to the constituent’s criticisms and yelled at him for questioning his work.
“This guy says I’m not doing my job, and he’s lecturing me on the Constitution,” Foreman says, in body camera footage that came from an officer at the Latah County Sheriff’s Department.
The officer then advises Foreman to move on. He agrees to do so, but not before calling the constituent a “liberal nut-tard” and telling him to “go to hell, you son of a b*tch.”
When interviewed by the Moscow-Pullman Daily News about the incident, Foreman was not apologetic for yelling profanity at a constituent. Instead, he attacked the man for being “unnecessarily rude,” and claimed that the fair treated Republican lawmakers as a whole very poorly.
“I would like to know why the Republicans get treated differently than the Democrats by the county fair,” he said. “I want a personal apology for how we were treated.”
