Police in Greece are hunting for a far-right MP after he slapped one left-wing female politician and threw a glass of water at another during a live TV debate.

Following the incident, the attacker Ilias Kasidiaris was locked in a room at the Athens studios but broke down a door and escaped, according to the TV host.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Mr Kasidiaris, spokesman for the Golden Dawn party, as tensions ahead of fresh elections in Greece became explosive.

The blonde woman who got the water thrown at her took it all pretty calmly.

I think our politicians are too afraid of being voted out of office to be interesting. My mayor is kind of fun, though. He's a RINO (Jim Fouts).

He was asked in the most recent election cycle what his birthdate was. He refused to give it, saying something to the effect of "I like to date younger women, so I don't want them to know how old I really am".
