Buzzfeed’s Ruby Cramer reports from an Anthony Weiner campaign stop, where Chris Owens, a Brooklyn political activist and former candidate for Congress, challenged Weiner for his activities on Twitter:

“I have a three-word question: How dare you?” said Owens. “I’m a parent. I’ve got two sons. I represent the Democratic party. I am outraged and disgusted by you.”

“I want to understand how you explain to us how you used a public facility to tweet offensive material to individuals who may have included minors, you did not know,” Owens went on. “You then lied about it, and tried to defend yourself, and then you come back — not even four or eight years later; you come back after two years — and you expect us to embrace you because you have good ideas?”
