Green Party candidate arrested outside debate site

• Washington Post

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein and running mate Cheri Honkala were arrested outside Long Island’s Hofstra University ahead of tonight’s debate. 

After being denied entrance to the campus because they lacked credentials, the two candidates sat down in the street in front of the university with an American flag on their laps, the Long Island Report explains. They were led away by police officers after refusing to move. 

Stein and Honkala objected to being excluded from the debate, saying they are on 85 percent of state ballots and should be part of the national discussion.

I remember when Badnarik (Libertarian) and Cobb (Green) were jointly arrested outside St. Louis for the same reason. And wondering where was Nader?
