WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, WV - FEBRUARY 01: U.S. Sen.

Though the video shows the Georgia Tech student asking his question, with Perdue responding “I’m not doing that,” before snatching the student’s phone, representatives for Perdue say that the Senator thought the student was attempting to take a picture.

Spokespeople said:

 “[senator Perdue] clearly thought he was being asked to take a picture and he went to take a selfie as he often does.”

But that’s not exactly clear. Even though the Senator eventually says, “You want a picture?,” the statement doesn’t explain why he said “I’m not doing that” before.

The development also has many questioning what the senator’s punishment should be if he’s found guilty.

It’s unclear what the punishment or even the results of the suit will be, but we can be sure that Senator Perdue will think twice before getting aggressive with his constituents again.
