A spokesman for Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party is wanted for assault after he threw a glass of water in the face of a female leftist politician, then struck a female communist party representative, all on live TV this morning, reports Reuters. Ilias Kasidiaris, who once served in the Greek special forces, became incensed on a Greek talk show by Rena Dourou, a radical left Syriza party member, calling her a "joke" and throwing a glass of water on her.
Communist party member Liana Kanelli then threw a magazine at Kasidiaris, to which he responded by calling her a "commie," pushing her, and hitting her repeatedly in the face. The TV station locked Kasidiaris in a room, but he broke the door and escaped before police arrived. Prosecutors are now after Kasidiaris for attempting to inflict dangerous bodily harm, which could mean a fine or up to 10 years in prison.
