GOP Senator challenges Teamsters leader to fight in Senate hearing
International Brotherhood of Teamsters president Sean O'Brien — who has a world-class Medford accent — almost got in a fight with a U.S. senator during a committee hearing today.
- Sen. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) brought up tweets from O'Brien stating, "You know where to find me. Anyplace, Anytime cowboy."
- Mullin offered to "finish it here." O'Brien agreed and Mullin rose from his seat before committee chairman Sen. Bernie Sanders called for order.
The intrigue: Mullin has a mixed martial arts record of three wins and zero losses.
Yes, but: O'Brien is a Teamster from Medford.
