Sen. Cramer reports Hazen man for making violent threats, calls him a ‘menace to society’
MINOT, N.D. — A North Dakota man who was involved in an aggressive incident with Sen. Kevin Cramer in 2017 has been charged with trespassing after he refused to leave a Republican Party facility in Payson, Arizona.
The 2017 incident, which happened at an open-to-the-public town hall event and involved Quinn pushing Cramer as he tried to stuff money in his pocket , made national headlines. “I was out of my mind with anger,” Mike Quinn of Hazen, North Dakota, told The Washington Post at the time .
Quinn, a former candidate for the state Legislature for the Democratic-NPL, later apologized to Cramer during an interview with both men on my radio show in May, 2017, but Quinn has re-emerged with troubling behavior in recent weeks.
According to Cramer, Quinn called his office and told an intern that he’s going to “punch Cramer in the face” the next time they see each other.
Cramer’s office confirmed the call to me, and indicated that the situation has been turned over to federal authorities for investigation.
