A couple of staffers from Virginia's 10th District congressional candidate Judy Feder's campaign tried to approach her opponent, Republican Rep. Frank Wolf, the other day to ask him to make clear his position on health care (something Wolf has refused to do so far) and, rather than talk them, stood by as members of his own staff assaulted one staffer with a cane, while a couple of others backed the second staffer against a wall.

Raising Kaine has more.
