Woman throws paint at building, nabbed

 

SACRAMENTO, Calif.: California police have arrested a woman who threw a feminine hygiene device containing “what appeared to be blood” onto the floor of the state Senate, splashing onto lawmakers and forcing them to finish their work in a committee room on the final day of the legislative session. Senators had just finished taking a vote about 5:14 p.m. Friday (8:14 a.m. Saturday in Manila) when a woman tossed the substance onto the floor of the Senate from the public gallery, saying: “That’s for the dead babies.”
