No Iowan, as yet, has been accosted by a protestor in Philadelphia one of the reporters following the Iowa delegation was slapped yesterday, by a Republican. David Kotok of the Omaha World Herald is working out of assigned office space that’s next door to a concession stand. Kotok asked a woman who sat down in his office to eat to leave the area, she hit him in the back when he turned around.Kotok joked this morning that it’s “very hazardous duty” for journalists working at this convention. There are just over two-thousand delegates to the convention — and more than 15-thousand reporters covering it. Kotok’s confrontation has been chronicled in various newspapers across the country.
