WV Attorney General McGraw, Morrisey staffer, have confrontation
A video being circulated by a Republican challenger to West Virginia's Attorney General shows a confrontation ending in a camera grab.
A YouTube video released by the Patrick Morrisey campaign, a Republican candidate for Attorney General, shows Attorney General Darrell McGraw exchanging words with Morrisey campaign staff member Justin Lafferty.
During the exchange, Lafferty is verbally attacked by a McGraw supporter, when it appears the attorney general attempted to grab the camera.
"What Attorney General McGraw did today was way out of bounds and shows that he's become unhinged," said Scott Will, campaign manager for Patrick Morrisey. "Voters have a right to see their candidates participate in public debates, mainly because it allows them to engage in a discussion on ideas and experience."
A phone call was made to McGraw campaign headquarters requesting comment. The campaign did not return calls. No charges have been filed.
