Green Party Candidates Arrested Outside Presidential Debate | Common Dreams

Presidential candidate Jill Stein and running mate Cheri Honkala barred from attending then arrested

 

Green Party presidential nominee Dr. Jill Stein and her vice presidential running mate Cheri Honkala were arrested Tuesday outside the venue at Hofstra Unviersity where President Obama and Republican challeger Mitt Romney later met for their nationally televised debate.

According to the Stein-Honkala campaign, the progressively-minded candidates will be on an estimated 85% of state ballots in the upcoming election. Yet because of agreements made by the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD)—created and controlled by the the dominant Republican and Democratic parties—they have been barred from participating in any of the presidential debates.
