Rep. Michael Grimm Threatens to Throw Reporter Off 'Fucking Balcony' for Asking the Wrong Question

The former Marine and FBI vet apparently made chilling comments to reporter Michael Scotto after he had asked about campaign finance issues. According to a transcript from the network conducting the ill-fated interview:

Scotto: “Why? I just wanted to ask you…”
