A spokesperson for Rep. Harris and the Capitol Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Daily Caller. The incident occurred just one week after protesters swarmed Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife, Heidi, at an upscale restaurant in Washington, DC. The restaurant, Fiola, hired security after the incident.
