When asked why he reacted violently at having his picture taken, House candidate Bob Steinburg explained:
"My people believe that when someone points one of those evil contraptions at you and the light flashes, they have captured your soul. And if you happen to die while your soul is still trapped in there, you will never be able to commune with your ancestors."
Okay, I made most of that up. What? It's a rainy day, and I'm bored senseless. Here's the real story:
Republican NC House District 1 candidate Bob Steinburg has been charged with assault after an altercation with his opponent’s campaign manager Thursday night in Hertford.
The incident happened following a candidate forum at which Steinburg appeared with his Democratic opponent, Bill Luton. The alleged victim of the assault is Luton campaign manager Russ Haddad.
Asked whether his response was appropriate, Steinburg said, “It was for me. I’m a man.”
They scraped the bottom of the barrel so hard they rubbed a hole in it.
