Right Back To Work

Not even an attack can keep this elected official down for long.

Just days after she was assaulted and robbed in Washington D.C., U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-Flushing) was back on the job.

On Tuesday, Meng was hit over the head and robbed of her handbag while she was out for a walk, with the incident resulting in a CAT scan. But on Thursday night, she was attending the grand opening of a liquor store in Fresh Meadows, along with Assemblywoman Nily Rozic.

After the obligatory photo op, our intrepid QConf reporter went up to Meng, wished her well and asked her how she was doing after the harrowing experience.

“I don’t even remember it, really,” she said. “So, I’m not even traumatized by it.”

Meng then went on her way to another event.

Sometimes, you just can’t keep a good elected official down.
