HEH: Democratic lawmaker in Virginia holds hammer-and-sickle image behind colleague aligned with Democratic Socialists.

“Even though sometimes we get overboard by laughing and having fun with each other in terms of our debates, I don’t think our House or any of our committees should be a place where we bring juvenile jokes like that,” Keam said.

Carter seemed visibly unhappy when Keam approached him to talk after the House adjourned. Other Democratic leaders also got involved in an apparent attempt to smooth things over.

“After watching the video, it was clearly intended as a joke, but it was in very poor taste and rooted in a lack of knowledge about the history of the political left,” Carter said Monday evening.

Must’ve hit it pretty close to the mark to get him all riled up like that.
