In two interviews today, Republican senate candidate Joe Miller defended a security firm’s decision to handcuff Alaska Dispatch editor Tony Hopfinger.
“I answered one question and he kept at it. So I turned around and I left,” said Miller to Fox News’s Neil Cavuto.
“And after I left the building, the security team that the contract required us to have arrested him because he pushed one of their individuals. … The reason why this whole thing is curious … at the beginning of this event, the blogger, he actually followed me into the restroom,” Miller reported.
“This is just absolutely crossing the line,” Miller concluded.
Talking to CNN’s John King, Miller said, “Well, I’ve got to tell you, I mean the behavior that was demonstrated while I was there was assaultive. It was certainly over the top. There’s no question that that hounding was something that shouldn’t have happened. And it was unfortunate. But, you know, this was a professional team that was hired according to the contract that we had and — and I’m sure that they did the right thing.”
