      Anti-war protester tries to handcuff Karl Rove

      SAN FRANCISCO - An anti-war protester confronted former Bush administration aide Karl Rove while he spoke at a San Francisco mortgage bankers' meeting.

      A statement by the group Code Pink identified the woman as 58-year-old Janine Boneparth, who tried to handcuff Rove in what she called a citizen's arrest for "treason."

      While Rove, who was speaking Tuesday at the Mortgage Bankers Association's annual convention, elbowed Boneparth away as she was escorted off the stage, no one was injured and no arrests were made, The New York Times reported.

      In total, five Code Pink members were removed from the hall during Rove's appearance. The organization says none of the five women were charged.

      "It was unfortunate that they chose this venue to protest whatever they chose to protest," the newspaper quoted Cheryl Crispen, a spokeswoman for the association, as saying. "We believe in free speech, but we believe there is a right time and place for it," she added.
