Sen. Cassidy condemns threats in wake of mail bomber arrest
Senator Bill Cassidy has made a statement following the arrest of Cesar Sayoc Jr., a Florida man who is suspected on sending out suspicious packages to various politicians and CNN, saying there is no place in American politics for physical threats and violence.
"We in Louisiana know that particularly well because Steve Scalise... my gosh, was shot
by a deranged follower of Bernie Sanders, so we understand that passions are high and stakes are high but first of all, we are Americans," said Cassidy.
Cassidy says politicians have a responsibility to be cautious with their words as they have the ability to make an impact on those that are, as he puts it, not quite right.
