Eric Cantor (R-VA) Blames Dems for Violence Against Dems

After Eric Cantor (R-VA) shamelessly blamed the Democrats for inciting violence against the Democrats, the petulant lawmaker then got defensive: Aw, so what. There was violence against me too!

Turns out, not so much:

"A bullet was shot through the window of my campaign office in Richmond this week, and I've received threatening e-mails," Cantor said. He refused to release details, however, saying it would only encourage more threats, and refused to take questions. Later Thursday, however, Richmond police said in a news release that the bullet had been fired into the air around 1 a.m. Tuesday. It finished its random arc back to earth at a sharp downward trajectory, breaking a window pane on the bottom floor of the two-story brick building where Cantor's campaign leases the top floor.
