Louisville's Democrat Mayor Punched While Dining at Restaurant
Greg Fischer assaulted after attending far-left events
Louisville's Democrat Mayor Greg Fischer was reportedly punched while dining at a restaurant, according to police.
Fischer (D) was reportedly assaulted by a male suspect while at a downtown dining and entertainment venue, a mayor’s office spokeswoman revleaed.
“Fischer ‘is doing fine,’ according to a statement from Jessica Wethington,” the Courier-Journal reported.
"Louisville Metro Police is investigating the incident."
The incident occurred after the mayor has spent the day attending far-left events in the city.
The Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) released photos of the suspect, who appears to be a black male, and said it will release more information when it comes in.
"Earlier this evening, while at Fourth Street Live, Mayor Fischer was punched by an individual,” the LMPD said.
"The Mayor is doing fine.
"LMPD is investigating & will release further information as it becomes available.
"Anyone with information can call our anonymous tip line at 502-574-5673."

Fischer was seen at multiple leftist events earlier in the day, including the Black Lives Matter-linked “Race for Justice” in honor of Breonna Taylor.
He was also seen walking in the “Kentuckiana Pride Parade,” the Courier-Journal noted.
In February, a Democrat candidate running for Louisville mayor survived a shooting when local racial justice activist Quintez Brown allegedly pulled a gun on him.
Craig Greenberg was unharmed in the shooting, even though he said a bullet grazed his sweater.
"This morning, I was gathered for a brief meeting with four of my incredible team members in our campaign office,” Greenberg said in the statement.
"A man walked into our office.
"When we greeted him, he pulled out a gun, aimed directly at me, and began shooting.
"The individual closest to the door managed to bravely get the door closed, which we barricaded and the shooter fled the scene.”
"Let me say again that all of us are blessed to be with you,” he added.
"Despite one bullet coming so close that it grazed my sweater, no one was physically harmed, and we are extraordinarily grateful for our safety.
"We are shaken, but safe."
