Hot Mic: Jack Reed Tells Susan Collins She Can ‘Beat the Sh*t’ Out of GOP Congressman (The Washington Free Beacon)
Sen. Jack Reed (D., R.I.) was caught on a hot mic telling Sen. Susan Collins (R., Maine) on Tuesday that she could "beat the shit out of " a Republican congressman who had criticized her and other female Republican senators who were hampering Obamacare repeal efforts.
The two senators were at the markup of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act of 2018 discussing multiple issues among themselves when Reed skewered Rep. Blake Farenthold (R., Texas).
Farenthold said in an interview last Friday that he might settle Republican opposition to health care efforts "Aaron Burr-style" if the senators were men from his home state of Texas, according to CNN.
