SAN FRANCISCO—A protester confronted former Bush administration aide Karl Rove while he spoke at a San Francisco mortgage bankers' meeting and tried to handcuff him in what she called a citizen's arrest for "treason."
Rove, who was speaking Tuesday at the Mortgage Bankers Association's annual convention, elbowed the woman away as she was escorted off the stage.
San Francisco police say they have no information about the incident.
Rove appeared with former Democratic Sen. George Mitchell. The two men discussed the mortgage crisis and the 2008 presidential campaign.
Rove served as Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Adviser to President Bush.
