The chair of Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX)’s Houston mayoral campaign was hospitalized after being attacked on Monday morning, according to a spokesperson for the congresswoman.

The alleged assault comes just days after purported audio of Jackson Lee berating a staffer with such colorful phrases as “fuckface,” “shitass,” and “Boo Boo” went viral after being circulated by right-wing social media accounts.

Gerald Womack, a longtime friend of Jackson Lee’s, was hit in the head outside his Houston office, Angelica Luna Kaufman told The Daily Beast.
