In an interview with Fox News Digital, CWA President and CEO Penny Nance said the man was a “left-wing activist” and had a habit of taunting CWA staff.

Over the past few weeks, he harassed our staff, he threw things in our building, and he threw things at cars inside our secure parking lot, but it got worse this weekend.
