Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) says that one of his staffers was knocked unconscious during a protest at his Huntington Beach, Calif., office on Tuesday.
In a statement, Rohrabacher’s office said that the protesters were part of a nationwide movement calling themselves Indivisible, which has vowed to resist President Donald Trump’s agenda by trying to occupy Republican congressional offices.
Kathleen Staunton, 71, who has managed Rohrabacher's office since his first term in 1989, apparently attempted to leave through the front door to go to the bathroom, when “a protester yanked the door open, causing her to fall and hit her head."
At the same time, the door hit a two-year-old child, who was uninjured. Staunton was rushed to a hospital by paramedics.

"I am outraged beyond words that protesters who mobbed my Huntington Beach office violently knocked down my faithful district director, Kathleen Staunton, causing her to be hospitalized," Rohrabacher said. "Though the protesters think of themselves as idealists, they engaged in political thuggery, pure and simple.
"These holier-than-thou obstructionists will be held responsible for this outrageous assault. They are exposing themselves for what they are -- enemies of American self-government and democracy."
