Dallas Woodhouse, executive director of the N.C. GOP, is no stranger to controversy nor, as a regular guest on political TV shows, to national exposure.

Earlier this week, for instance, he sparked headlines by appearing on an MSNBC show bearing a pair of handcuffs for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

On Thursday, Vice News Tonight correspondent Antonia Hylton caught up with Woodhouse to talk about voter suppression. Woodhouse and Hylton mixed it up pretty good before the interview was over.

It started out as a simple question about whether Sunday voting was a partisan issue or not.

Woodhouse tells Dome the video was deceptively edited, omitting his remarks pointing out that New York has zero early voting days.
