Yesterday, GA Rep. David Scott (D) yelled at a doctor who waited four hours to voice his opinion on health care at a community meeting. The meeting was about an $80 million highway bill that cut through dozens of his constituents homes, and because of the importance of the issue, Scott felt as though the doctor was being inappropriate by asking an unrelated question. However, the doctor was told by Scott’s officials that he would be permitted to ask whatever he wanted – these were instructions given to him before the doctor even opened his mouth.

Now, Fox News is reporting that Scott’s office was vandalized with a four-foot by four-foot swastika. Apparently the office of Scott’s that was vandalized was located in D.C., though the news at this point is not entirely clear. Scott had said previously that he believes the "town hall" protesters who are concerned about health care have racist undertones.

The relevant part of the video starts at around 2:03.



“I was standing up for the people of Douglasville,” Scott said in his defense, after this incident took place.
