This woman was actually trying to start fights with people in line, waiting to get into the auditorium at the Rep. Russ Carnahan townhall forum on aging.
While Carnahan gave a press conference today blaming tea party people for the “mob-like” activity, it was actually his own, admitted staffers who were the cause of the rabble-rousing:
*Update: this from Jim Hubbard, Rep. Carnahan’s Deputy Communications Director:
No member of Congressman Carnahan’s staff was arrested last night.
**Working identifying the woman in the video.
Woman is identified as Javonne Spitz of O’Fallon.
Around the :48 mark (I was right here when this video was shot, FYI) Spitz refers to Kenneth Gladney as “black man.”
