Remember this? In January, Democrat Michael Meehan, a Martha Coakley aide, shoved The Weekly Standard’s John McCormack into a metal gate. A media firestorm ensued. Then, a few days later, Scott Brown was elected to the Senate.
Meehan will be back in the spotlight this afternoon when the Senate Foreign Relations Committee considers his nomination to the Broadcasting Board of Governors. President Obama nominated Meehan for the post last November.
