American news figure for the attempted assassination of President Gerald Ford in 1975. She had begun a correspondence with newscaster Chuck Rossi of NBC in August 1975. A worshipful follower of Charles Manson, she wanted to get him on TV with his message of enlightenment. Rossi would not agree so she decided to stalk and shoot Ford to get the publicity that would put her on TV.

On 9/05/1975, Sacramento, she watched as Ford and his entourage left the Senator Hotel at 9:45 AM. Petite and childlike, in a red gown and red turban, she followed the crowd and angled in to meet Ford face to face. She fumbled in her robe for her pistol and aimed at his genitals. A secret service man grabbed the gun and everyone piled on her.

The attempt got her the publicity she wanted; she was on TV, but she also was sent to prison, and she never did get Manson or his message across. She was released from jail on parole on August 14, 2009.
