Former Texas Rep. Robert Francis O'Rourke, who fancies himself a major supporter of free press, ejected a reporter from Breitbart News from one of his events Tuesday afternoon at historically black Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina.

Before the event, the reporter was confronted in the hallway by an O'Rourke staffer who told him he would have to leave. A second staff member informed him that he was being removed because he had been "disruptive" at past events, and that he could either leave of his own accord or be "officially uninvited" from campus.
