This Rough Stuff Ain't Nuthin

Everybody is aghast at the alleged threats emanating from the Trump and Sanders campaign or more precisely from their most ardent followers directed against politicians like the so-called super delegates and other professional politicians opposed to their man.
It is small potatoes compared to the bare knuckles shown by the “Brooks Brothers Brigade” in Florida in November 2000. They were paid GOP operatives acting as hooligans led by Congressman John Sweeney who physically shut down the recount of over 10,000 votes in Miami.
Their actions probably saved the election for George W. Bush who coined the nickname Congressman Kickass to describe Sweeney from then on. Remember, Bush won Florida and the presidency by about 500 votes.
