Man throws fire bomb at Democratic state senator Wendy Davis’ office in Texas

At least two fire bombs were thrown at the Fort Worth office of state Sen. Wendy Davis (D) on Tuesday night, according to the Star Telegram.

Davis was not in her office at the time, but some staff members were present. They used a fire extinguisher to put out the small blaze.

No one was injured in the attack, but the lawmaker’s office was damaged by the fire.

“It’s unfortunate when things like this happen in the public arena,” she said. “It reminds us of how important it is for us to remain very civil in our discourse and to work not to foment this kind of anger in our community as we discuss things that are challenges that we all face and care about.”

Anthony Spangler, Davis’ communications director, said he had no idea what motivated the attack.

“We have an office that?s open to the public all the time, and so we’re always potentially vulnerable to things like this. We?re thankful that no one was injured. We hope that the investigation is concluded quickly and that they identify the suspect.”

A maintenance worker pursued the suspect out of the building, but was unable to catch him.

Davis is a first-term senator who beat a Republican incumbent in 2008. She had been locked in a court battle over redistricting.

“Thank you all for your expressions of support and concern,” she said on Twitter after the attack. “My team and I are concentrating on moving forward and staying focused.”

Any support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

Please remember I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has been taken offline by their original hosters which would be unavailable for viewing if it wasn't for this site. Therefore I would kindly ask you to help support me so that the site can continue doing what I think is an important job as well as reporting on stories the mainstream media would rather you didn't know about. I personally think it is important to host material such as removed reports that show that even FOX News once repoted on Israeli spy rings following the 9.11 hijackers before September 11th Or publishing the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was removed from their site once they enacted some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power.

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation, especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful!
