Remember that nicely dressed, sun-glassed anti-health care advocate who berated the man with Parkinson’s and threw some dollars at him?
His name is Chris Reichart. Says he’s sorry. I doubt it. He’s only sorry that the press found out his name. Reichert was captured on video outside the offices of Democratic Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy, screaming and throwing dollar bills at Robert Letcher, a supporter of the Democratic health care reform who was seated before him. Reichert shouted “If you’re looking for a hand-out, you’re on the wrong end of town.”
Adolescent behavior for sure, but then, his ‘type’ lives there. “I snapped. I absolutely snapped and I can’t explain it any other way,” said Chris Reichert of Victorian Village, in a Columbus Dispatch interview.
Reichert then stepped from the crowd, bent down, pointed a finger in Letcher’s face and as he tossed a pair of dollar bills yelled, “I’ll pay for this guy. Here you go. Let’s start a pot, I’ll pay for you. I’ll decide when to give you money. Here. Here’s another one.”
Earlier this week, Reichert, 40, denied any involvement in a confrontation featured in a Dispatch video that drew an emotional response from viewers across the country.
He said he’s fearful for his family after reading comments about his actions on the Internet.
“I’ve been looking at the web sites,” he said. “People are hunting for me.”
Another right-wing nut nailed!
