A Nebraska Democratic Party official was caught on tape saying he was "glad" House Majority Whip Steve Scalise "got shot" in last week's GOP baseball shooting. The audio recording was posted Thursday on YouTube. In the recording, Phil Montag, a technology chairman in the state, apparently said, "His whole job is to get people, convince Republicans to [expletive] kick people off [expletive] health care. I'm glad he got shot." He added, "I wish he was [expletive] dead." Nebraska Democratic Party Chairwoman Jane Kleeb confirmed to local media outlets that the voice was, in fact, Montag. He was fired after the recording was made public, Kleeb said. "We obviously condemn any kind of violence, whether it's comments on Facebook or comments in a meeting," said Kleeb. "Our country is better than the political rhetoric that is out there from both the far right and the far left."
