U.S. Senate Aide Stabbed As GOP Examines D.C. Crime

An aide to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) was stabbed in Washington, D.C., and treated for life-threatening injuries. Police arrested Glynn Neal, 42, for the Saturday incident. Federal prison records show Neal was released from prison, the day before the attack. The latest incident comes as Republican members of Congress have been sounding the arm about rising crime rates in major U.S. cities. On Wednesday, the House Oversight and Accountability Committee will hold a hearing on "Overdue Oversight of the Capital City: Part 1." It will include testimony from city council members and chair of the D.C. police union, reports USA Today.


Later Wednesday, the same panel will try to remove D.C.’s Comprehensive Policing and Justice Reform Amendment Act of 2022 retroactively. The Paul staff member, who works on the Senate Homeland Security Committee, was stabbed on a busy commercial street . He told police he did not know the man who stabbed him or why he was attacked, reports the Washington Post. Neal told police that “a voice was telling him that someone was going to get him for all the things he done. So [Neal] was waiting right there to get the someone.” As of Monday, homicides in D.C. were up 16 percent compared with the same time in 2022, a year when the city surpassed 200 killings for only the second time in two decades. Property crime was also up — by about 27 percent year-over-year.
