Woman threw egg salad at Secret Service agent, police say
www.statesman.com ^ | 02/25/08 | Tony Plohetski

Posted on 02/25/2008 11:20:02 AM PST by TornadoAlley3

A Texas state Capitol employee who police said wanted to go in the building Friday before a rally by presidential candidate Barack Obama threw a bowl of egg salad at a U.S. Secret Service agent who denied her access, according to an arrest affidavit.

Tracy Firsching, 47, is charged with assault on a peace officer, a third-degree felony for which she faces up to 10 years in prison.

According to the affidavit, Firsching started to go around police barriers when she was stopped by Secret Service agent Brian Sanders, who told her that she could not go in the secured area without an escort.

The affidavit said Firsching told Sanders that, “You’re going to have to arrest me” and attempted to go past him. Sanders grabbed her by the arm to turn her around when she threw a plastic bowl of egg salad at him and struck him in the face with the bowl, the affidavit said.

According to the affidavit, Sanders received a scratch that was “red and visible from several feet away” during the incident.

Did you see the earlier thread where an argument between two brothers-in-law suporting Obama and Hillary! respectively ended in a fight, with one stabbing the other? One’s in jail, the other in critical condition at the hospital.

Sixteen stitches put him right and the Judge said, "Don't say he didn't warn yer." Tracy got sentenced to ten in the slammer, servin time in California.

Years ago, I was at an event where the U.S. Secret Service was providing protection for Corazon Aquino when she was president of the Philippines. People who wanted to listen to her speak had to have tickets for the event, and had to walk through a magnetometer.

A guy who looked like a college student with his girlfriend walked through the magnetometer, then said to her, “Well, they missed the gun I’m carrying.” He wasn’t carrying a gun, but I guess he thought it would be funny to say something like this to his girlfriend.

Secret Service personnel swarmed this idiot, slammed him into a wall, searched him, tore up his ticket, and threw him out.

Hey Doug, maybe something you can build upon. Maybe not for this incident but certainly Obama has the Tommy thing going. I can’t choose between Hill or Bill for Uncle Ernie, though.

a SS agent is classified as a peace officer? weird. guess it differs from state to state. maybe it's a balloon classification for all cops/agents.

i'm going to guess a history of mental disorders. did she bring enough egg salad for everyone at the rally? if not, she deserved this.

This sounds rather severe for the crime, except in cases involving egg salad which oughta be life with no chance of parole.

There still might have been bits of shell in the mixture. Thats dangerous.

DING DING DING! We have a winner! In the absence of other information, why are we all assuming she wanted to see Obama?

Of course, if the egg salad tests positive for salmonella, it's all over ...

And the Secret Service placed the egg salad into the evidence locker.

Your comparison between the civil law and the Pharisees' perverted interpretation of the Law of Moses is entirely baseless.

It was a joke concerning Obama's cult followers. Not a dig at Christianity.

from what I gather Hillary would be going it alone.
++++++++++++++++++
True. I’ve heard many times the discust the USSS had for the Clinton clan and their staff and handlers. The whole bunch treated USSS agents with disrespect, had little regard for the most elementary of security precautions almost as if to snub their noses at the SS agents trying to do their jobs.

...fell in love the first time I heard Old Richmond Prison and the hair on the back of my neck stood up...

dittos with The Fields Have Turned Brown, Who Will Sing For Me, Man of Constant Sorrow, Rank Stranger, Harbor of Love, Lonesome River and just about everything else the Stanleys ever recored.

I read a review of Dr. R's singing which described a voice like "whiskey poured over a buzz saw". His and Dylan's voices just get more expressive and more idiosyncratic as they get older...high and lonesome just like God intended.

They don't make 'em like they used to...

It's almost March - can festival season be far behind?

“It’s almost March - can festival season be far behind?”

When I was going to seminary in Kentucky I was seeing his band 3 or 4 times a year at least. I was definitely spoiled, plus there are some great bands in Ky who are just copying the Stanley style, some really well.

Sammy Adkins is another great band, he of course played for Ralph in the 80’s. I can’t get enough of that Stanley style, he really perfected that lonesome sound in my opinion.

GEORGE: So, I’m thinking, as she’s saying this, I’m thinking: great, the relationship’s over. But the egg salad’s on the way. So now I have a decision - do I walk or o I eat?

JERRY: Hmmm? You ate.

GEORGE: We sat there for twenty minutes, chewing, staring at each other in a defunct relationship.

JERRY: Someone says, “Get out of my life!” and that doesn’t affect your appetite?

GEORGE: Have you ever had their egg salad?

JERRY: It is unbelievable.

Someone going to see a presidential candidate with “a bowl of egg salad”

The unanswered question: What was the open bowl of egg salad for? If this was bill clinton I wouldn’t be asking.

I think everyone knows the answer they just don’t want to share it....
