An Augsburg College student says she was attacked and punched on election night, because of her support for Sarah Palin. 18-year-old Annie Grossmann tells KARE 11 she was assaulted after attending an election night party. “They saw the pin and they started calling me racist, and I’ve never seen these girls before,” Grossmann. Grossmann says 4 women confronted here, one of them grabbed her, began shouting at her, and wouldn’t let her go.

“After about 5 minutes or so I just got really sick of it, just holding me there by force. So I kind of pushed her back and started walking away. She grabbed me by the shoulder, I turned around, and she punched me in the eye,” she said. Bruce Grossmann, her father, says the punch caused his daughter to hit her head on a wall behind her.
He says she sought medical treatment for blurred vision. She missed a couple of days of hockey practice and may have suffered a slight concussion. Augsburg officials do not believe the suspects are students at the school. Grossmann filed a police report; Minneapolis police say they’re still looking for the suspects. Annie Grossmann grew up in Delta Junction, Alaska. She is attending Augsburg college and is a Freshman on the hockey team. She calls Palin “a role model.” “I’ve met Sarah Palin once and my mom works for her,” Grossmann said.
