RICHMOND — A bullet that hit a window in Republican U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor’s office building was fired randomly into the air, police said Thursday.
Cantor announced at a Capitol Hill news conference Thursday that a shot had been fired into his Richmond campaign office.
In addressing reporters, he denounced threats and vandalism against Democrats who passed sweeping health care reform legislation that has angered conservatives, but accused senior Democrats of inciting retribution against Republicans.
“It is reckless to use these incidents as media vehicles for political gain,“ Cantor told reporters.

Then he acts as if he has been attacked when Virginia police say it was a stray bullet that struck his office.
Maybe Mr. Cantor, you should have waited to see if you were actually attacked before you went to the press with your political fantasy of being shot at.
His home town newspaper writes.
