Republican Congressman Paul Broun was asked at a town hall meeting in Athens, GA, “Who is going to shoot Obama?” The audience laughed. The congressman didn’t seem to have a problem with the question, answering by hoping Obama is voted out of office:

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.

The Secret Service took the question far more seriously than did Representative Broun.

A law enforcement source confirmed that the Secret Service interviewed the constituent and determined that he or she was an “elderly person” who now regrets making a bad joke.

“In this case this was poor taste,” the source says. “The person realized that.”

Would have been nice if Broun had expressed that at the time.
