Lawmaker is Asked "Who Will Shoot Obama?"

The Athens Banner Herald reports Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) was asked at a town hall meeting, "Who is going to shoot Obama?"

The question was met with laughter, but Broun did not immediately condemn it. In fact, TPM reports several witnesses say Broun laughed as well.

Said Broun: "The thing is, I know there's a lot of frustration with this president. We're going to have an election next year. Hopefully, we'll elect somebody that's going to be a conservative, limited-government president that will take a smaller, who will sign a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare."

Later, Greg Sargent notes Broun issued a statement, noting "I deeply regret that this incident happened at all."
