GOP Aide Stomped On; Leg Broken In Four Places After Fundraiser

MEGYN KELLY, FOX NEWS: And she was at this fundraiser for the governor trying to raise money and she comes outside of the event after its over and what happens?

DELLA BURNING, MOTHER OF VICTIM:  She and her boyfriend are walking down the street.  Derogatory comments were being made to them.  As they turned a corner some areas of the French Quarter are darker than others basically they were attacked in this darker area.  It was very difficult to see.  It’s more difficult to see from where it is on the street.

KELLY:  When you say that derogatory statements were made to them, what do you mean?

BURNING:  I don’t want to… it’s easy to mislead the investigation... but I don’t want to get into the political ramifications of them but things were said to my daughter and to her boyfriend that basically everything was about money.  From the time they were walking out of the restaurant things were being said to them.

KELLY:  Was your daughter robbed?  Was she and her boyfriend robbed?

BURNING:  No.  They were not robbed.  She was robbed after, actually, after whoever did this to her, when she was screaming on the ground and the men who did this to her ran off, her purse was stolen.

KELLY:  One reporter says that he spoke with the Public Information Officer at the New Orleans Police and that Public Information Officer said that insults of a political nature had been hurled at your daughter and her boyfriend during the attack.  Do you have any problem with that report?

BURNING:  Honestly this is not a Republican or Democrat problem, this is a problem that a young girl and her boyfriend were attacked and the story hasn’t really come out.  And I just want to make sure that these guys are found.  That’s the important part of this.  There is accuracy in the story.  I just think that yes when you do the investigation you do look at the people who were in the area at the time, to be able to bring the right people in for questioning.  That’s the really important part.
