Tempers flare between Oklahoma Senator and Union President during hearing
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KSWO) - Tempers flared at a senate hearing with Teamsters union leaders.
Senator Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) called out the union president and things almost came to blows when Mullin read back a tweet sent by the union president before saying they could, “finish it here.”
Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who was presiding over the hearing intervened and kept the two from fighting. However, tensions remained high post hearing.
“You don’t do that in Oklahoma,” Mullin said. “You don’t run your mouth unless you’re gonna answer the call. I didn’t start it. I didn’t tweet at him. I didn’t go after him. I have no beef with a guy.”
