Vaccine protester dumps apparent blood onto California lawmakers

The California Senate was forced from its chamber and halted work for more than three hours on the final day of its session after an opponent of mandatory childhood vaccinations poured what appeared to be blood on lawmakers from the gallery Friday evening.

The California Highway Patrol said it arrested a woman who “threw a feminine hygiene device containing what appeared to be blood onto the Senate floor.” The agency said the liquid landed on several senators.

“That’s for the dead babies,” the woman shouted as she threw the liquid from the balcony overlooking the Senate floor.

The CHP identified her as Rebecca Dalelio, 43. According to online property records, she lives in Boulder Creek outside Santa Cruz. She was booked on suspicion of six crimes, including assault and vandalism, and was being held on $10,000 bail.

Dalelio has regularly shared posts on her Facebook page that support consipracy theories about vaccines.

In the Senate chamber, red splatters could be seen on the desks of several lawmakers.

Sen. Richard Pan, D-Sacramento, who sponsored the vaccine legislation, was shoved from behind on a Sacramento street in August by a vaccine opponent who videotaped the incident. The man was cited for misdemeanor battery.

“As their rhetoric escalates, their incidents of violence does as well,” Pan said in a statement Friday night. “This is an attack on the democratic process and it must be met with strong condemnation by everyone.”
