Sen. Claire McCaskill — who went through a pretty tough town hall herself today — told CNN tonight that it was “irresponsible” for Democratic Rep. David Scott to blame racism for some of the town hall anger across the nation.

“I think that is irresponsible to say,” McCaskill said on Anderson Cooper 360 Wednesday night. “There may be individual instances of that but there are a whole lot of people who are frustrated … but I’m not sure if it would be accurate to make that about race.”
