Before the Republican from Staten Island threatened to beat up a reporter, he brandished a gun at a nightclub and threatened to punch voters who don’t like him.

For anyone who has followed Staten Island Congressman Michael Grimm’s career, the fact that he would threaten to throw a television reporter off the Congressional balcony after the State of the Union, saying “I will break you in half” and “you’re not man enough…like a boy” should not come as a surprise.
