According to the Athens Banner-Herald, Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) got a doozy of a question at a town hall meeting Tuesday.
The reporter couldn't hear the question, but reported that the "whatever it was, it got a big laugh."
Later, a Broun spokesperson confirmed to the reporter that the question was, in fact, "Who is going to shoot Obama?"
According to the Athens paper, Congressman Broun did not denounce the question, but responded:
Today the United States Secret Service said they interviewed the subject. "We've taken appropriate investigative steps. At this point we consider the matter closed," Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan told CNN.
