Lawmaker Chides Park Ranger Over Closed Memorial

Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-TX), who voted along with other Republicans to attach conditions to a funding bill knowing it would close the federal government, was videotaped by NBC Washington confronting a park ranger as she was keeping most of the public out of the closed World War II memorial.

Said Neugebauer: "How do you look at them and deny them access? The Park Service should be ashamed of themselves."

Replied the ranger: "I'm not ashamed."

At that point, a crowd of onlookers got involved telling the lawmaker to pass a budget before he walked away.
