Eric Cantor just held a press conference to address the threats and violence that have been made against him. After announcing that someone shot a bullet through his campaign office, he quickly condemned not only those who are committing the acts of violence but also those who would use it for political gains. He specifically called out DNC Chairman Tim Kaine and DCCC Chris Van Holland for fanning the flames of violence.
So I guess we can blame this on the tea party members too? He did the right thing by not using this to make political statements or for political gains. He never once tried to pin this on constituents on either side of the isle.
