The attack in Connolly's office is the latest of multiple recent acts of political violence among threats to members of Congress, their staffs and families.

In October, Paul Pelosi, husband of then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was hospitalized and had multiple surgeries after being attacked with a hammer. In March, a member of Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul’s staff was “randomly and brutally attacked” in Washington, D.C.

Democratic Rep. Angie Craig of Minnesota was assaulted in her Washington apartment building in February, suffering only bruises from the attack.
