During a town hall event over the weekend, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) mocked a woman who claimed she was assaulted by his staff after she used her question time to try and lecture the congressman.

In a video uploaded to YouTube, a woman who identifies herself as a member of the California State Bar claims that her First Amendment rights were "violated" by Issa's "bodyguard."

"I had a very small sign that said, 'Investigate Russia Now,'" the woman told Issa. "There are many other people with signs here. Your bodyguard, security guard, came over and took my sign away from me forcibly. I asserted my First Amendment rights of free speech. I told him it was suppression of speech."

At first, Issa took the woman's complaint seriously and explained that only signs that were large enough to obstruct the view of others were to be taken. He even apologized for her sign being taken away. But as he tried to explain which size of signs were allowed, the woman began to talk over him.

"Mine was small and it was forcibly taken from me and it constituted a battery," the alleged lawyer declared.

"It was your staff. They committed a criminal offense against me," she explained.

The crowd began to make noise, taking note that the situation was heating up. That's when Issa made a quip from the stage that left the woman speechless.

"Well, okay," Issa said. "We’ll go on to somebody who doesn’t have a pending lawsuit. Next!"

BOOM.
