An undercover recording has been released to the public and it is not pretty.
Nebraska Democratic Party official Phil Montag was caught saying he was ‘glad’ that Hodgkinson shot at House Majority Whip Steve Scalise.
It gets worse though.
“This motherf***er, like his whole job is like to get people, convince Republicans to f***ing to kick people off f***ing health care,” Montag said of Scalise. “I hate this motherf***er. I’m f***ing glad he got shot!”
During the recording you can hear Montag say he would never repeat this in public and added moments later “I wish he was f***ing dead.”
So is this what all Democrats are saying behind closed doors?
The anonymous man who started recording Montag during his rant delivered the news to him.
“It’s ok, because I’ve been recording this conversation since you’ve come in, so I will publicly release it myself,” the man told the Democrat.
At that point you can imagine Phil probably shat himself.
Jane Kleeb, Nebraska Democratic Party Chairwoman, has confirmed that the man’s voice in the recording dropping f-bombs and wishing death on Republican Scalise belongs to Montag.
He was immediately fired.
Kleeb condemned Montag’s remarks and argued that America “is better than the political rhetoric that is out there from both the far right and the far left.”
