Rep. Gary Miller Shoves Cameraman When Asked About Shutdown (Video)

Rep. Gary Miller (R-Calif.) recently shoved an unidentified cameraman who asked if he would support a "clean CR" funding bill to end the federal government shutdown.

According to The Huffington Post, Rep. Miller was walking near the Capitol Hill Club on Wednesday when he was asked if he would vote for a clean Continuing Resolution bill (which would not defund Obamacare).

After not answering for a few seconds, Rep, Miller mumbles, "Thanks," and shoves the camera with his hand, pushing it downward (video below).

When asked about the shoving incident and if he would vote for a "clean" bill, Rep. Miller's office dodged both questions and told the The Huffington Post:

I am deeply concerned about the impact this shutdown is having on working families, veterans, and seniors in the Inland Empire. The House has continued to pass funding measures to ensure vital government functions and services can continue. But, any agreement will require both sides coming together. In all my time in Congress, I have never seen the solution to a disagreement come without both sides coming to the negotiating table.

According to The Washington Post, Rep. Miller was awkwardly confronted by a group of young immigrants at a public event in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. in August (video below).

“You know, I’ve talked to a lot of young people like [you],” Miller told the immigrants. “I mean, I understand the difficulty. Just like I was born in Arkansas. I came here when I was a year old.”
