The Unraveling of “Baby Killer” Remark

CNN is reporting this afternoon that the culprit was Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Texas), who released a statement admitting as much.

And this just in from WaPo:
“Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Tex.) admits shouting ‘baby killer’ during House debate over health care.”
