ROUNDUP: Mark Amodei is Very Offended by Teenage Constituent

Republican Rep. Mark Amodei apparently can dish it out but can’t take it. The Congressman who has no problem dropping foul language to reporters was so offended by a student constituent’s call to his office urging him to take action on gun violence that he tattled on the constituent to his high school principal and got the constituent suspended. Now, the ACLU is calling on Amodei to apologize.
