U.S. Rep. Don Young, not known for always being appropriate, was caught on camera on Tuesday being particularly inappropriate as one of his colleagues, Rep. Scott Garrett, was talking about a bill to rename a post office after Joseph D’Augustine, who was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2012. Watch the video here.
Matt Shuckerow, Young’s spokesperson, sent a statement to The Daily Caller, which first had the story:
“ The House cameras caught Congressman Young in a light-hearted moment interacting with a colleague. As a veteran himself, his actions were obviously not related to the legislation being discussed on the House floor and he clearly meant no disrespect.”
