Mike Bost Meltdown: Illinois Lawmaker Says Reaction To His Epic Outburst ‘Mostly Positive’ (VIDEO)
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Screaming, swearing and referencing the Bible, a red-faced Illinois Rep. Mike Bost punched at papers he threw in the air while lambasting the state’s powerful House speaker. Then he swiped his microphone away and flopped back in his chair in a silent sulk.
The Republican’s videotaped tirade is creating an online stir, and he said Thursday that he’s received mostly positive reaction since his outburst Tuesday on the Illinois House floor.
He said he’s been surprised by the attention, since his echoed similar outbursts directed at Speaker Michael Madigan and Democrats over the years by Republicans, the minority party at the Capitol.
