Protester attempts to handcuff Karl Rove

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - October 22, 2008 A statement by the group Code Pink identified the woman as 58-year-old Janine Boneparth, who tried to handcuff Rove in what she called a citizen's arrest for "treason."

Rove, who was speaking Tuesday at the Mortgage Bankers Association's annual convention, elbowed Boneparth away as she was escorted off the stage.

In total, five Code Pink members were removed from the hall during Rove's appearance. The organization says none of the five women were charged.
