Rep. Lincoln Davis (D) CoS Beecher Frasier "came under fire today after videotape evidence surfaced that showed him becoming agitated and then assaulting a college student who was asking" Davis questions.
According to a release from DesJarlais camp, Davis "was exiting an event he co-hosted with" Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) in Chattanooga. "He was met by two college students who were asking" Davis "questions about his campaign tactics. Video evidence then reveals" Frasier "lashed out at the student holding the camera."
Physician Scott DesJarlais (R) mgr. Brent Leatherwood, in a statement: "Beecher Frasier should resign immediately. This video reveals his violent and threatening behavior and seems to show a history of attacks that all of us can witness for ourselves. There is no doubt this videotaped assault and battery is unprofessional, uncalled for and unacceptable. ... It's documented. It's disturbing" (Release, 10/18).
