Rep. Morgan Griffith

An animated Congressman Morgan Griffith had unusually strong words for some of his Democratic colleagues this week after one of them suggested coal country representatives were short-sighted — and “playing to the cheap seats”. Griffith’s response in Congress was “nuts to you”, a reference an American general’s reply to a German surrender ultimatum in World War II. WFIR’s Evan Jones has the story.
