Ken Cuccinelli, the acting deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, was reportedly chased out of a Capitol Hill bar Wednesday by former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, who berated him over the Trump administration’s immigration stance.
According to a witness who took to Twitter after the incident, Mr. Cuccinelli was driven out of a Thanksgiving Eve party at the Dubliner — a bar popular among Gonzaga High School graduates, a school both Mr. Cuccinelli and Mr. O’Malley attended.
“Martin O’Malley just drove Ken Cuccinelli out of the Dubliner in DC w/ a passion-laced and shame-invoking tirade on behalf of immigrant refugee children!!!” Siobhan Houton Arnold tweeted.
In a followup interview with The Washington Post, Ms. Arnold — who works in Villanova University’s media relations — said Mr. O’Malley was “shouting” at Mr. Cuccinelli, who only responded that it was “time to go” before leaving the bar.
