Update: As Simple J. Malarkey points out in the comments Warren has said that this person worked for a taxi company not for her campaign. It doesn't change the fact that this scuffle happened less than 10 feet from her. It is doubtful she was aware of it. In addition the MassDems put out a video showing a Dem Tracker getting thrown out of a VFW event in March. Brown is across the room, and engaged in conversation when that happened.
"I have really done three things in my life. I have taught school, I've done research and I have thrown rocks at people that I think are in the wrong." - Elizabeth Warren
"I'm proud to be here with people who understand that it's more than just sending an email to get you going. Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary," - Rep. Mike Capuano (D-Ma.)
Looks like the apple doesn't fall far from the Democratic Party leader's trees. Yesterday on Martha's Vineyard, as first reported at the Weekly Standard, Elizabeth Warren's driver punched an employee of the Massachusetts Republican Party. The employee was following Warren at a distance that protected her personal space as a tracker. Warren's driver came up to the tracker, put his hand in the camera, threw it to the ground, and then threw a punch at the MassGOP employee. Here is the video.
Nate Little, the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Republican Party, had the following to say via an emailed statement.
"Yesterday on Martha's Vineyard, a campaign aide for Elizabeth Warren physically assaulted and threatened an employee of the Massachusetts Republican Party. In addition to knocking the camera from the employee's hand, the individual also threw a punch. This type of behavior is completely unacceptable and has no place in our public discourse. Despite witnessing this assault first-hand, Professor Warren took no action and allowed it to continue. As Professor Warren falls further behind in the polls, we expect that she will become more negative toward Scott Brown. However, that should not be an excuse for her staff to lash out in violence. Professor Warren needs to address this situation and ensure that it doesn't happen again.
You will remember that in the closing days of the 2010 special election, a Martha Coakley aide shoved a reporter outside an event in Washington D.C.
