    Panelists need to ask citizens how they feel about Sen. Stephenson. Many are not happy with his behavior. Check social media on this incident. I have witnessed his bullying during a public panel presentation when he was an audience member. He has an anger management problem combined with seeming to believe he’s entitled to behave however he pleases. I’m disappoint to hear you brush this off as “passion.” You’re enabling his inappropriate behavior and sending the message that being a rude bully is acceptable!
