Betsy Rothstein with the Hill has the scoop. 

Rep. Emanuel gives reporter a kick in the pants – literally  

Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.) looked positively giddy in the Speaker’s Lobby last Thursday. While walking and chatting alongside The Washington Post’s Paul Kane, he gave the reporter a chicken-wing kick on his backside, schoolgirl style. Kane seemed unfazed; the two laughed and continued talking.

Perhaps his good mood had something to do with his positively reviewed performance at the previous night’s Washington Press Club Foundation Annual Congressional Dinner.  

Kane declined to comment on the incident.
