Former U.S. senator and diplomat Carol Moseley Braun suffered a broken wrist when a mugger tried to steal her purse, authorities said.
Braun, a Democrat who ran for president in 2004, was standing at her front door late Friday when an assailant came out of the bushes and tried to take her purse, said her spokesman, Kevin Lampe. When Braun resisted, the man pulled a knife and cut the strap of the purse, Lampe said Saturday.
Here is wishing Ms Moseley Braun a swift recovery.
And the lede should have been "Ex-Presidential Candidate, Former U.S. senator and diplomat...".
