Former U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer assaulted, robbed in California

Published

on

Former U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer was shoved from behind and robbed of her cellphone in Oakland on Monday, a message from her Twitter account said.

Boxer, 80, was assaulted in the Jack London Square neighborhood.

“The assailant pushed her in the back, stole her cell phone and jumped in a waiting car. She is thankful that she was not seriously injured,” the message read.

Oakland police said a strong-arm robbery that occurred on Third Street around 1:15 p.m. is under investigation, but police in a statement did not identify the victim.

Jack London Square — on Oakland’s south waterfront, next to Alameda — is an entertainment district about 6 miles from the Oakland Athletics’ ballpark.

Boxer, a Democrat, was a U.S. representative for 10 years and then a senator for 24 years, representing California.

Boxer was first elected as a U.S. representative in 1982. She was elected to the Senate in 1992.

She did not seek re-election in 2016.

Woman waving Trump flag drives onto Minn. Capitol grounds, disrupting news conference

Published

WASHINGTON — A woman waving a Trump flag drove her sport utility vehicle onto Minnesota State Capitol grounds Monday, disrupting a news conference being held by embattled Democratic state Rep. John Thompson.

The woman, Tammi Jeka, 52, fled across the Capitol’s south lawn in her SUV before being stopped by state troopers, according to Bruce Gordon, communications director for the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, in a statement to NBC News.

Jeka drove her vehicle on the sidewalk during Thompson’s news conference that was being held on the steps of the Capitol. Troopers talked to Jeka and told her leave the area and drive to the roadway so she could be cited. Jeka instead drove on the lawn before driving to the street, said Gordon.

The two troopers were able to take the vehicle’s keys, police said. Jeka exited the vehicle on her own, was taken into custody and transported to a hospital where she is being evaluated.

The State Patrol plans to forward the case to the Saint Paul city attorney for consideration of charges, including reckless driving, said Gordon. Jeka could not be reached for comment.

Thompson was holding a press conference with supporters to address calls for his resignation after past allegations of domestic violence surfaced following a recent traffic stop, saying he would not step down.

Thompson did not immediately respond to NBC News’ request for comment. In a Facebook post earlier this month, his attorney, Jordan Kushner, said Thompson “challenges the authenticity of the police reports that have been circulated to the press” and “categorically” denies the allegations, which were first reported by the Fox affiliate KMSP.
