Steve LaTourette Calls Town Hall Question "Bullshit" (VIDEO)

Republican leaders have defended rowdy town hall protesters, saying people should be allowed to speak their minds. But it was Republican Rep. Steve LaTourette (Ohio) who called a question "bullshit" -- twice -- at a town hall in Chagrin Falls.

After agreeing with an audience member that everyone should be civil, LaTourette responded to a question about whether he would ever vote for reform by saying, "That's a bullshit question."

LaTourette also reacted to the outbursts at other town hall events by saying, "Sometimes chickens come home to roost."
