Watch an excerpt from Congressman David Scott’s appearance on Hardball with Chris Matthews. The Georgia Democrat addressed the vandalism and racist messages directed towards him and Obama during the heated debates over health care reform.
A sign outside Scott’s district office was spray-painted with a swastika. He’s also received letters with images of Obama as the joker, claiming Scott “will always be a nigga”.
The congressman is adamant that these attacks do not detract from debate on the issue.
