GOP Rep Headbutts Camera When Asked If It's OK To Seek Foreign Help In Elections
Activist group MoveOn has been wandering the halls of Capitol Hill asking Republican lawmakers if a president asking a foreign government to interfere in a U.S. election is acceptable.
When Rep. Don Young (R-AK) was approached with the question, he offered only silence — followed by a headbutt to the camera, according to RawStory.

“@cathymcmorris @repgregwalden @RepLarryBucshon @RepBuddyCarter Watch Republican Congressman @repdonyoung (R-AK) headbutt the camera when we asked him if it’s okay to ask foreign governments to interfere in our elections. And no, he never answered the question. https://t.co/FWgmkdzycG”
The group has posted video to Twitter showing several GOP House members refusing to answer whether they are comfortable with President Donald Trump’s decision to withhold U.S. military aid to Ukraine while asking for investigations into his political opponents.
The issue has taken center stage in House Democrats’ impeachment probe, which numerous Republican lawmakers have said is illegitimate.
Young was no more eager than any of the other Republicans to answer MoveOn’s questions, choosing instead to amuse himself with a headbutt.
“There you go,” the congressman said as he smiled and walked away without providing an answer.
