You Scared, Bro? Stabenow Boots Conservative Watchdog Out Of Press Conference Just For Filming

Senator Debbie Stabenow is under fire after she recently booted a conservative watchdog peacefully filming her remarks at a recent event. 
Stabenow was discussing prescription drug policies, leading one to wonder, what is she hiding? Why is she scared of her comments being public? 

Perhaps because Stabenow, like most in DC, is a tool of big pharma on most issues...
The Michigan Republican Party blasted Stabenow in a statement about the incident.
"(T)oday, United States Senator Debbie Stabenow had a tracker for the independent watchdog group ‘America Rising’ forcibly removed from a public press conference she was holding at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. The tracker was not asking questions or causing a disturbance. He was simply attempting to film the Senator’s remarks on prescription drugs. The event was open to the general public and he was thrown out simply for working for a group that the Senator does not like."

(America Rising is definitely conservative, but that's not the point, the guy was simply filming a public press conference and not at all disruptive.)
Michigan Republican Party Deputy Chief of Staff Sarah Anderson says Stabenow crossed the line and should apologize.
“A public servant such as Senator Stabenow should have nothing to hide when it comes to her remarks," Anderson said. "Tactics such as these have no place in a free society and are unbecoming of a U.S. Senator.  Debbie Stabenow needs to apologize immediately.”
Don't hold your breath waiting for that apology!
Maybe if he was an illegal immigrant, she'd let him stay, no problem. God forbid an American wants to hold elected officials accountable...
