Man Tackled Near Sen. George Allen
Allen Was Not Injured

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- A man was tackled Tuesday just feet away from Sen. George Allen (R-Va.) as he was walking through a lobby in Charlottesville with Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-N.C.).

Allen was about to talk with members of the media in the lobby when a man walked up and started yelling. As he was pushed away from the senator, the man yelled, "Did you spit on your first wife?" He was then tackled by another man who was wearing an Allen sticker on his shirt.

The man was then escorted out of the building as Allen moved into a conference room.

The heckler is Mike Stark, a first-year University of Virginia law student and liberal blogger who has dogged Allen at a number of campaign stops, News4's Julie Carey reported. He routinely questions the senator in the manner of documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, but on Tuesday his shouted questions drew the ire of Allen's supporters.

Stark writes on his blog about some of his confrontations with Allen. He also writes that he's been involved in making videos critical of the senator that have been posted on the popular Web site YouTube.

In fact, after Tuesday's incident, it took national Democratic party leaders only a few hours to steer supporters to a Web site that featured the video under the headline: "Allen Staffers Attack Man At Campaign Stop."

The scuffle came on the heels of another poll showing Allen trailing Democrat Jim Webb -- the third in recent days to show a slip in what was a slight lead for the Republican incumbent.

What an ass.
