Reporter Confronts City Commissioner About Scandal — the Politician’s Reaction Had Him in Jail by the End of the Day

Dothan, Alabama, City Commissioner Amos Newsome was arrested Tuesday after police say he physically assaulted a local television news reporter.

Newsome was being asked by WTVY-TV reporter Ken Curtis about a number of voter fraud convictions that possibly helped get him re-elected in 2013. Pressure had been building in recent weeks for Newsome to resign because of the controversy.

“Do you have any plans to resign,” Curtis asked Newsome, as the 82-year-old Democrat put his hand out to push the reporter back. Newsome dismissed at least two previous questions from Curtis, saying “excuse me” as he kept walking.

Not a problem. Just charge him with assault and battery.
