Jennifer Fox, a protester at Occupy Seattle and a 2011 Issaquah High School graduate, skyrocketed to national attention in recent days after she said she miscarried following a confrontation between police and protesters, even as police and the media questioned the claim.

Fox, 19, attributed the miscarriage to kicks and pepper spray from police. The teenager is seen in a video screaming after police used pepper spray against Occupy Seattle protesters at Westlake Park on Nov. 15.

Fox initially told The Stranger, a Seattle alternative newspaper, she suffered a miscarriage after the confrontation, but she has not provided medical documentation to the media during subsequent interviews.

The viral video and Fox’s reported miscarriage attracted national attention, including from The Washington Post and Forbes.

Meanwhile, Seattle Central Community College administrators decided Wednesday to oust the Occupy Seattle encampment from the college’s Capitol Hill campus.

    It seems Jennifer has a great deal of difficulty keeping her story(s) straight. How many drama classes did she attend at Issaquah High school?

Got something to say?
