The foul-mouthed female protester who was arrested Wednesday for spitting in the face of an NYPD officer once interned for a high-ranking House Democrat.
Devina Singh, 24, spent about a month in 2018 working as a social work intern for U.S. Representative Jerrold Nadler, who chairs the House Judiciary Committee, the Daily News reported.
Singh ‘did not complete the internship and left shortly after the internship started for personal reasons,’ Nadler’s district director, Robert Gottheim, told the News.

Gottheim did not elaborate further on why she left prematurely after starting in September 2018.
Nadler represents Manhattan’s West Side and was reelected Tuesday.
Singh, of Brooklyn, was among the 57 people arrested in New York City on Wednesday night after she was filmed in Manhattan’s West Village neighborhood screaming ‘f**k you fascist’ at an NYPD officer before spitting in his face.
Footage of her spitting at the officer, which went viral on Twitter, was immediately condemned by the NYPD and police unions.

Singh, of Brooklyn, said before she was arrested, a cop slammed into her with his bike, causing her to fall. Her arm was broken during the course of her arrest, she said. Singh was charged with obstruction of governmental administration
‘Actions like this will not be tolerated. Agitators who commit these acts will be arrested,’ the NYPD tweeted alongside the video.
After the incident, Singh was thrown to the ground and arrested.
Singh told Gothamist Thursday that before her arrest, she was roughed up.
While Singh was walking on Seventh Avenue, she said, a Strategic Response Group officer slammed into her with his bike and caused her to fall.
