Reporter threatened by Rep. Michael Grimm reacts to re-election

Remember the time a Republican congressman, Michael Grimm of New York, threatened to break a reporter "in half" and throw him off a balcony in the Capitol? Grimm was reelected on Tuesday, despite the fact that he's under indictment for fraud charges.

So Brian Stelter wanted to hear more from the reporter - Michael Scotto of New York City's cable news channel NY1. Grimm's threat came last January after Scotto tried to ask him a question about the fraud allegations. Scotto says he would "definitely" ask Grimm the same question again.
