Paul Ryan embarrassed a far left heckler at a town hall today, “You changed clothes.”
USA Today reported:

At the last of four events on Rep. Paul Ryan’s “listening tour” of his district Thursday, he called on a man in the front row of a high school auditorium, then instantly recognized him.

“You changed clothes!” Ryan told Steve Jozefczyk. The 54-year old salesman from Franklin, Wis., had asked Ryan several critical questions from the front row of an event six hours earlier in Waterford, when he wore a shirt and tie. In Greenfield, it was a black “Faux News” parody T-shirt.

Josefczyk admitted trying to trick Ryan into calling on him again.

When he got out of his seat and approached Paul Ryan he should have been taken down by the police. Where were the police?

UPDATE: Fredipus added: Steve Jozefczyk is the author of a self-published book on “teabaggers”.
