“Under the leadership of their former leader [Pelosi], when in 2009 and 2010, they had the House, the Senate and the White House, and knew this problem existed,” Marino said. “They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then. But now are trying to make a political issue out of it.”
The comments infuriated Pelosi, who walked in view of the House camera to cross the aisle and confront Marino, according to video posted by Fox News.
Pelosi did not have a microphone, so it’s unclear what exactly she was barking about, but Marino’s response could be heard clearly.
“It’s true, madam leader, I did the research on it,” he said. “You might want to try it. You might want to try it, madam leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. That’s one thing that you don’t do.”
