Video: Rep. Patterson Loses Temper, Committee Seat

Posted By on Fri, Mar 26, 2010 at 12:31 PM

You may have heard that state Rep. Daniel Patterson (D-Tucson) was removed from his seat on the House Committee on Military Affairs and Public Safety earlier this month.

Well, we at Tucson Weekly TV have tracked down the video for your viewing pleasure, so you can see first-hand the terse March 17 exchange between Patterson and Sen. Russell Pierce. The two were discussing SB 1027, a pilot program which would install small seismic sensors to detect illegal border crossers.

As an aside, if a Joe Biden gaffe can sell T-shirts, than these gems from the video can too:

"You're not the chairman here. I am." - Rep. Jerry Weiers

"We've had a lot of problems with the applications of this so-called 'technology.'" Rep. Patterson

"You just step up to the mike and make things up." - Rep. Patterson

"I'm going to explain my vote. And I probably shouldn't, but I can't help myself." - Rep. Weiers

"I'm not impugning anyone!" - Rep. Patterson
