Wait. What? Coakley Thugs Wrap Cameraman in Campaign Sign
Ok, this is so wrong and so lame that I am at a loss. Video at the link at the bottom.
The Croakley campaign’s physical intimidation tactics didn’t end with her aide Michael Meehan shoving Weekly Standard reporter John McCormack to the ground. This happened yesterday in Springfield, Massachusetts:
A cameraman working on a ballot integrity initiative with Americans for Limited Government Foundation was wrapped up in a large Martha Coakley campaign sign by her supporters as he tried to video the campaign rally.
According to Erich Heyssel, who was attempting to film a Coakley campaign event, "While filming at a Martha Coakley event I was approached by two men holding a 4×8 sign. They proceeded to hold the sign up in my line of sight, I tried to move, and was continuously blocked by these men and their sign."
Heyssel continued, "The situation escalated as they forcibly held me in place by wrapping the sign around me."
Dan Tripp, the project leader for Americans for Limited Government Foundation’s coverage of the Massachusetts special election, defended Heyssel, saying, "Martha Coakley needs to calm down her bullies."
