The latest incident of mayhem as the November elections approach comes from a Michigan GOP county chairwoman who claims a boisterous Democratic protester bit her on the arm at a Tudor Dixon rally.
Cheryl Costantino, chairwoman of the Wayne County Republican Party, said to Detroit’s WXYZ News on Thursday, exposing bruises and bite marks on her upper left arm,“I’ve never been bit by an adult in my life, or anyone over 5.”
“I couldn’t even raise my arm, like, it was even uncomfortable just to drive,” she added.
Both the Dearborn Public School District and the Detroit Police Department are currently looking into the demonstrator, a special education teacher from Dearborn, Michigan.
The incident happened on October 29 at a restaurant in Detroit where Dixon was appearing alongside former Democrat Tulsi Gabbard, a former congresswoman from Hawaii who has backed numerous Republicans this year.
The woman was she was acting so erratically that I was afraid she may attack the speakers or anything else, or even hurt someone.
When Costantino attempted to stop the demonstrator because he was worried she would rush the platform, the GOP official claimed she simply stooped down and severely bit her.
According to eyewitness Linda Sawyer, the demonstrator seemed proud of the assault.
On the same night that President Biden condemned political violence in a speech in which he cited the hammer attack against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul, New Hampshire Republican Don Bolduc deflected a punch from a would-be assailant before he took the stage to debate Sen. Maggie Hassan.
Dixon has unexpectedly narrowed the gap between himself and Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to 2 points, according to the most recent poll in Michigan.
