Mike Stark Assaulted by George Allen Supporters/Staffers

Reports are coming in that George Allen staffers attacked Mike Stark when Stark tried to ask him some questions after an event.
As Senator Allen was exiting a ballroom, coming to talk to the media, a protestor started yelling and asking, "Why did you spit on your first wife?". He wasn't able to get near the senator as he was tackled by three men wearing Allen stickers, presumed to be staffers. He was pushed and manhandled and ended up on the floor, near windows at the Omni.
There's video on the site, but it's not very good. (It's on Youtube, and the footage is crazy). More should be coming as there was press all over the place. This was not a protest, the Allen people just attacked him.
Not a good move to have your campaign assaulting voters, Senator.
