After a Senate judiciary hearing, on the re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act (also called Deny a Man his Civil Rights by Making a False Allegation Act) a man was assaulted outside by a domestic violence advocate (see below). The man Ben Vonderheide, was filming (legally) for his production company Daddy Justice. In the elevator, in the rear, photos were taken by Executive Director of Family Law Advocates Initiating Reform (FLAIR) Gordon Smith.

The woman who assaults Mr. Vonderheide in the video is Lisalyn R. Jacobs. Ms. Jacobs is the current vice president for government relations of Legal Momentum, NOW attorney and one of the individuals responsible for implementing the highly discriminatory and unconstitutional VAWA legislation. Here is Ms. Jacobs’ bio from the Legal Momentum website:

She began her legal career at the National Partnership for Women and Families under the auspices of Georgetown’s Women’s Law & Public Policy Fellowship. Following three years in private practice, she joined the Office of Policy Development of the U.S. Justice Department in 1995 and worked on a number of issues including implementation of the Violence Against Women Act, the welfare reform law, judicial nominations. and affirmative action.
