The Publisher of The Golden Hammer met Scalise at a fundraiser in The Woodlands for the National Republican Congressional Campaign Committee. Scalise is a Washington, D.C., apartment-mate of Kevin Brady, United States Congressman from The Woodlands and Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. Scalise is a friend and consistent source of information readily accessible to The Golden Hammer on national news items.
The Golden Hammer wishes Scalise a speedy recovery to Scalise, and the law enforcement officers. Hopefully, the would-be assassin will come to justice swiftly.
