CNN’s congressional correspondent Brianna Keilar reported in by phone late last night to Wolf Blitzer as the House passed health care reform.
Keilar had shocking news to share: She told Blitzer that members of the media on Capitol Hill were buzzing an undisclosed GOP lawmaker shout “Baby Killer” at Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.), but no one in the media could figure out who the voice was.
The mystery is over.
CNN is reporting this afternoon that the culprit was Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Texas), who released a statement admitting as much.
And this just in from WaPo:
“Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Tex.) admits shouting ‘baby killer’ during House debate over health care.”
WaPo reports: “Neugebauer says he was not referring to Rep. Bart Stupak, but instead, “I exclaimed the phrase ‘it’s a baby killer’ in reference to the agreement reached by the Democratic leadership.”
