A woman tried to “arrest” Karl Rove for treason while the former White House aide was appearing at a meeting of the Mortgage Bankers Association yesterday in San Francisco, according to KGO-TV.

“Rove tried to elbow her away before she was taken offstage,” The New York Times reports.

In a statement to the Associated Press, Code Pink, an anti-war group, identified the woman as Janine Boneparth.

How to Win in a Knife Fight

Karl Rove
The Democratic race could well come down to the first contested convention in years.Lessons on how to prevail.

Rule #1: Control the Convention Mechanism. If you set the rules, decide who votes, organize the event and control what is said, it’s almost impossible to lose.
Rule #2: Watch the Platform. Party platforms were once the most important statement of the presidential campaign. No more.
Rule #3: It’s All About Delegates. Delegates are political junkies. This is their moment in the spotlight. Don’t take them for granted. Make every effort to attend to their every legitimate (and legal) need.
Rule #4: Have a Strategy to Win. Whatever combination of endorsements, announcements, policy statements and stagecraft you can engineer to create a sense of momentum going into the convention, do it.
Rule #5: Focus on Staging. Conventions are elaborate made-for-TV productions. We live in a culture of the visual. Every moment and every event should be scripted.
