Joe Brown and Allee Bautsch
Allee Bautsch, chief campaign fundraiser for Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, and her boyfriend Joe Brown, were savagely beaten Friday night in New Orleans after leaving a Republican party fundraising dinner by a group of thugs who reportedly targeted the couple because they were wearing Sarah Palin pins.
Bautch's leg was broken and Brown incurred a broken jaw and nose as well as a concussion.
The Hayride reports that a source who visited Bautsch at the hospital the day after the attack says they were told the couple was attacked for wearing Palin buttons:
Two people at the Brennans event have now confirmed that the protest had largely broken up by the time it ended, but we also understand from someone who visited Allee Bautsch in the hospital Saturday morning that she and Brown were followed and attacked expressly because they had Palin pins on (she heard one of the attackers say Lets get them, they have Palin pins on so the attack WAS politically motivated as its victims understood it. It was not a mugging, it was not an argument gone wrong and it was not a bar fight.
The story of a Republican and her boyfriend being viciously attacked for wearing Palin buttons has yet to make national headlines, unlike say, unfounded rumors of nasty words being said by Tea Party protesters.
Yes. I have 125 grain JHP +p for my 38 special. Just what the doctor ordered.
I say fight back when attacked......they want us to shoot them if we have too....
We should pass out “I Love Sarah” pins with every permit.
I’m sorry I sent them a nickel after Katrina.
“Lets also remember that Brennans is at 417 Royal Street in the French Quarter. There is a police station at 334 Royal Street, literally less than a block away. NOBODY gets mugged in front of a police station, not even in New Orleans, and not with a big crowd of people standing around unless the assailant is with those people.”

No news report locally, except the scatterings at the link?
Sic Jack Bauer on them.
where can i get one of those...i love it...
Probably had on either Purple SEIU Shirts or Obama Hope and Change Shirts!
A church we attended (VERY conservative) had a note on the bulletin board about no guns being allowed....????!!!
The governor's office said Monday that Allee Bautsch suffered a broken leg and her boyfriend suffered a concussion and fractured nose and jaw in the alleged ...
Yes, I was thinking maybe we should all wear Palin pins in solidarity. And in concealed-carry states, the thugs aren't going to know who's carrying.
I might have to order a couple of those pins.
Yes. Friday night. The local TV station waited two days to report on this, and refused to give any details about what happened or who did it. There was a very brief story here last night from the local NBC TV station, all details concealed.
It’s always the left that does these things.
No, it has to be those nasty, violent “Christian militia related” “Tea Baggers”.
This will be TOTALLY IGNORED by the media,
because it doesn’t fit the above template.
They are just THAT dumb!
They won’t try anything at a Tea Party -
they are inherently cowards and will only attack when they have the advantage.
Find another church. Make noise about why you are leaving. God helps those who help themselves.
