Interior Secretary Ken Salazar reportedly threatened to punch a reporter with the Colorado Springs Gazette after he asked him about the Bureau of Land Management's wild horses program at an Election Day get out the vote event... The interview — recorded by Philipps and and witnessed by Ginger Kathrens, head of the Cloud Foundation, a Colorado-based wild horse advocacy organization — was "perfectly pleasant" until the end, Kathrens said.
After the interview , Kathrens said she tried to shake Salazar's hand. He brushed past her, she said, and approached Philipps. Salazar then reportedly said, "Don't you ever ... You know what, you do that again ... I'll punch you out." Salazar's spokesman Blake Androff said Tuesday that, "the Secretary regrets the exchange."
