A video seems to show Frankel, a Democratic Florida Representative, getting mad at the diner owner who displayed Frankel’s potential rival.
The video of the verbal altercation, captured June 17, has been authenticated by Richard Kline, the owner of the City Diner in West Palm Beach and in Frankel’s district, Human Events reported. According to Human Events, it begins during the Frankel-Kline argument.
I’m going to make sure every single one of you [inaudible] knows exactly what’s been happening here,” Kline said to Frankel. This was apparently in reference the campaign poster for Republican Primary Candidate Deborah Adeimy that hangs in the diner. Kline responds to Frankel by asking whether he is allowed to vote as he wishes, and, “If not, should I put it [the campaign poster] down?”
Kline told Human Events that Frankel has been a customer for many years, and that she may have been tipped off to the presence of the campaign poster by another customer, who asked about it earlier in the day. Kline claims that Frankel was there shortly after the customer and “didn’t come to eat.” She comes along with her mother, an elderly woman when she goes to eat. Human Events said that it’s quite a different way of thinking.
She was wearing dark shades when she came into the room. According to Human Events, Kline stated that she was searching for the picture.
Frankel has been a U.S. Congress member since 2013, and does not face a Democratic primary opponent. Adeimy will face off against four other candidates Aug. 23 for the Republican nomination.
Frankel’s co-candidate, Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio -Cortez has come under fire for her double standards. She complained about being catcalled and said that she does not feel protected by the “institution”. (RELATED: Ocasio-Cortez, Omar Roasted For ‘Pretending To Be Handcuffed’ After SCOTUS Arrests)
The Daily Caller reached out to Frankel’s office for comment, but did not receive a response at the time of publication.
