It's messed up.
Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor said Thursday that his Richmond campaign office has been shot at and that he's received "threatening e-mails" -- but at the same time the House minority whip accused top Democrats of trying to exploit the threats they've been receiving for "political gain."
The shooting took place on Monday. As reported earlier here, 10 lawmakers are under federal protection for security issues relating to their "yes" vote on the Health Care Bill.

The Associated Press had reported that the bullet was fired through the window of the office of one of Cantor's political consultants, but an aide says the bullet was indeed fired through the window of Cantor's campaign office.
More than 10 Democrats have reported trouble since the weekend health care vote.
Some Democrats have called out Republicans for egging on the hostility, pointing to specific examples of GOP behavior that could incite violence.
Members of Congress met yesterday with the FBI and other law enforcement officials to discuss the threats that have been made against at least 10 members.
