Member of Rep. Brad Finstad’s staff attacked at gunpoint near the Capitol

A member of Rep. Brad Finstad’s staff was attacked at gunpoint a few blocks from the Capitol after Wednesday night Congressional Baseball for Charitysaid the Minnesota Republican.

Finstad said one of his employees was attacked outside his residence that night, after thousands of congressional workers and Washington, D.C.-area residents packed Nationals Park to watch Democratic members and Congressional Republicans — including Finstad — play ball.

“After Wednesday’s Congressional Charity Baseball Game, one of my staff was attacked outside his residence by a gunman,” Finstad said. “Fortunately, he will be able to make a full recovery and the extent of his physical injuries was minor. I thank the DC Metropolitan Police Department for their prompt response and attention to this incident.”

Finstad’s office did not share the exact time of the incident or describe the injuries.

“In Washington, D.C. and cities across the country, anti-police and soft-on-crime policies have created lawless societies that endanger the public and reinforce criminal behavior,” Finstad said. “It’s time we started treating criminals like criminals and reintroduced common sense policies that lock up career criminals, keep the public safe and allow our police officers to adequately protect our communities and prevent criminals. violent criminals out on the streets.”

The Finstad staffer is not the only staffer or member to have been assaulted in Washington in recent months.

In March, a member of Senator Rand Paul’s staff suffered a potential cerebral hemorrhage and a punctured lung in a broad daylight stabbing. According to an affidavit, Glynn Neal, 42, attacked and stabbed Phil Todd as he walked out of a restaurant in northeast Washington, DC.

And in February, Democratic Representative Angie Craig was attacked in her building. The abuser, Kendrid Hamlin, pleaded guilty of assaulting a member of Congress and assaulting law enforcement officers responding to the incident.
