The Nebraska Democratic Party ousted an official Thursday after a recording surfaced of him saying he wished House Majority Whip Steve Scalise had died in the Alexandria, Virginia, shooting that left him critically wounded.
Phil Montag, a volunteer co-chairman of the party’s technology committee, unloaded a series of expletives in describing his disdain for Rep. Scalise, who is still recovering from an attempted assassination of Republican members of Congress at a June 14 baseball practice.
“This motherf–-r, his whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to f–ing kick people off f—ing health care. I hate this motherf–-r,” Mr. Montag said in the audio recording.
“I’m glad he got shot,” he added. “I wish he was f–ing dead.”
