Rick Green Assaults Patrick Rose

This just in from Hays County.

Former Republican Rep. Rick Green who was taken down by Patrick Rose in 2002, apparently got a little upset over a Rose mailer that had his face superimposed on this year's Republican nominee Jim Neuhaus (as Green is deeply involved in running the Neuhaus campaign).

So upset that Rick Green drove up to the polling location that Patrick Rose was at a punched him in the face, catching him off guard and knocking him to the ground.

Apparently there is an all-point bulletin out in Hays County for the arrest of Rick Green.

Republican values in action?

Update: Patrick Rose is doing fine (no broken bones or noses) and will be working the polling locations in Dripping Springs until the end of the day.

Seriously? (0.00 / 0)
This is completely ridiculous.

What a Shame (0.00 / 0)
Patrick Rose has been such a postive force in Texas politics.  Any idea of how things are looking for him this year?


A punch in the face (0.00 / 0)
is the only threat Rose faces from a Republican

Arrests? Warrants? (0.00 / 0)
The Statesman says that "no arrests were made".  Does this conflict with the above report that there's currently a warrant out for Rick Green?
