WATCH: California Reps Nearly Brawl At Congressional Debate

California congressmen Howard Berman and Brad Sherman nearly came to blows before being separated by a police officer during a contentious debate at Pierce College on Thursday night.

The two Democratic Reps, who are battling for the same San Fernando Valley congressional seat after being redistricted, got into a heated confrontation over an immigration bill.

After Berman stepped close to Sherman, Sherman yelled “Get out of my face!” and then grabbed Berman around the shoulder,  shouting “You want to get into this?” as he pulled his opponent closer. A police officer then separated the two congressmen, as the apparently bloodthirsty crowd cheered them on.

As the Los Angeles Times reports, the race has become one of the most bitter and heated in the nation despite the fact that the two candidates agree on most policy issues. The most recent poll of the race, conducted by SurveyUSA for KABC in late September, shows Sherman leading Berman by a 45 to 32 percent margin, with 23 percent still undecided.

  • With that kind of Spread in the Poll Numbers; hardly any reason to get too excited – – unless, the Aggressor made it Personal. Sounds like that’s what it was; as they seemed to agree on the issues. This is only the tip of the Iceberg of what’s coming, Nation-wide! Sounds Biblical; in some respects. Our entire Social, Economic, and Political System has been corrupted by the Sound of Money! No respect – – nothing held, “Dear,” anymore; least of all; how we TREAT Each Other! Prepare for Riots and Violence; and Pray that it doesn’t come to Civil War!

      That’s alright, bring it on.. The g’ment’s got it all covered as their pencil necks predicted a military safe guard for such actions voted in by the true criminal element running our country (congress).

    As in Rome, we look for “Bread and Circuses”.

    The level of the whole campaign is like one big brawl with the constant accusations of lying flying around all the time. “I did not have sex with that woman”! History repeats.

      Well, Canistercook, I must admit that I agree that Clinton did “not have sex with that woman”. I was born and raised in a super-Christian, uber-conservative state and back in the 1940s even nice junior high school girls knew how to keep their boyfriends in line without having sex (no birth control available for teenagers back then) and none of us considered fellatio as having sexual intercourse any more than we would consider masturbation as having sex. By the way, I was never a fan of Clinton until the conservatives got rolling on their attacks and I decided that if those morons hated Clinton so much that he must be OK after all.

    Let the two Jewish warriors put on 16 once gloves and go for each others’ noses. Charge admission to benefit the United Jewish Appeal Oasis Projects.

      You are right. If tickets are for sale nationwide, I’ll be one of the spectators. I haven’t seen a fight in years. …and for two men fighting for one political seat!! Great.

  • DurdyDawg

    Dem reps? Playing pub games! Neither one of these idiots should be allowed to win.. Get a reasonable leader who would only fight for America and not for personal ego.
