Connecticut Delegation Attacked By Protestors

Image descriptionPeace loving Obama supporters have attacked the Connecticut GOP delegation at the convention in a malicious attack.

Covered here, protestors hurled clorox and water at the delegation.

When Chairman Healy’s mother Lila was spat upon by a protester, former U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons stepped between the elder Healy and the crowd. He was doused with a liquid substance that was later determined to be a mix of clorox and water. At least 10 other delegates also were hit with liquid.

With police assistance, the delegation managed to break through the crowd and slip inside the security perimeter. The police quickly responded to the altercation and were able to prevent it from escalating further.

These protestors will, when they vote, vote for Obama.
