A judge ordered a mental evaluation Monday for a man accused of taking workers hostage at a Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign office, and his attorney said the man saw visions directing him to "sacrifice himself" to bring awareness to mental health issues. Leeland Eisenberg, 46, was accused of walking into the office Friday afternoon with what looked like a bomb duct-taped to his chest.
