UPDATED FROM MIDDLETOWN RECORD:
Hinchey found some support for one of his denials at the Monday gathering from YNN reporter-videographer Doug Short, who witnessed Thursday's confrontation.
Short said that there was no question that Hinchey did not choke or try to choke Kemble, who has alleged on a website that the congressman "put his hands on my throat."
Short said the congressman "went right over to Kemble" after telling him to shut up and the two "got in each other's faces."
Short said he saw some "finger-wagging" on Hinchey's part, but could not be sure if the congressman ever touched or poked the reporter.
In the first video on YNN that has gotten so much attention, Maurice Hinchey asks Bill Kimble in response to a ridiculous question that the Congressman had answered many times previously: What are you talking about? Are you still as deceptive as you have always been? And then Hinchey tells Kimble that he's full of baloney.
Kimble's latest claim in the freeman today that Maurice Hinchey assaulted him before the debate, lol, I think we can say with full certainty that YES, Kimble is as deceptive as he has always been and he is indeed full of baloney on his version of what happened. We can also say that he should probably shut up and stop with his vendetta against our Congressman. Maybe Mr. Kimble's idol is that Blair guy from the NY Times, I just do not understand why he thinks he can make stuff up.
While everyone agrees there was a heated argument between the Congressman and Kimble, no one seemed to see Maurice assault Kimble. The YNN reporter and several other witnesses saw Hinchey and Kimble arguing but no one saw Hinchey put his hands on Kimble's neck, as Kimble claims.
Why? It didn't happen. No tv reporter would walk away from a confrontation that involves a Congresssman, it's just too juicy. The tv reporter watched and saw what happened and said point blank, Mr. Kimble's version of events are not what I witnessed.
Furthermore, the argument happened before the debate. Kimble covered the debate. So we are to believe that Kimble was assaulted and than went into the debate like nothing happened and covered the story?
Give me a break! Sounds to me like Bill Kimble is full of baloney!
