This week Emilia DiSanto, top staffer for Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), was attacked in front of her home by a large, masked man wielding a baseball bat.

The FDA and Big Pharma are among those in Grassley's cross hairs for not being vigilant enough with product safety.

Thanks to researcher Teresa Binstock putting these articles together.
