A Republican House member was slammed by a Democratic colleague as a "chickens**t thief" after borrowing one of his signs, a Capitol Hill newspaper reports.
"On Thursday, during House votes, a very angry Rep. Heath Shuler (D-N.C.) had some distinctly non-collegial words for Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas)," Emily Heil reports for Roll Call's "Heard on the Hill." "The words 'gutless,' 'chickens--t' and 'thief' were flung."
[...] "Shuler and his gang, the fiscally conservative Blue Dog Democrats, say the Texas Republican pulled off a high-stakes heist."
Heil observes, "Next time Gohmert gets the urge to steal — or borrow — something, HOH humbly suggests he chooses a less physically intimidating target."Petty theft and felonies galore. Republicans: The Party of Desperation.
