Jill Stein to be charged with vandalism:
Still thinking about casting a vote for Green Party candidate Jill Stein? If so, perhaps one of the things you like about her is her well known opposition to fossil fuels, pipelines and, well… pretty much anything that keeps the lights on which doesn’t involved a windmill. She’s certainly dedicated to the cause, as she demonstrated (literally and figuratively) in North Dakota this week. But rather than simply voicing her displeasure with a local pipeline project, she decided to take it one step further and commit some vandalism. (Inforum)
More than 100 protesters gathered at a Dakota Access Pipeline construction site Tuesday where two people bound themselves to bulldozers and Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein was meeting with pipeline opponents.That report doesn’t really get into the vandalism aspect of the story, but there’s evidence available which leaves the question in little doubt. The video of Stein engaging in the spray painting is embedded in this tweet from a local news station.
A woman and a man attached themselves to equipment east of State Highway 6 using the same type of casting material used by demonstrators last week. The gathering began about 10 a.m. Tuesday northwest of the main pipeline protest site. About 75 people remained by 12:30 p.m.
I suppose the video was too much for area law enforcement to ignore because local media is now reporting that Stein will face charges. . . (Bismarck Tribune)However, as noted by HotAir:
Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, who is accused of spray-painting equipment Tuesday at a Dakota Access Pipeline work site, will face charges for her action, Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier said in a press conference…
In closing, I would simply note for any liberals who may have wandered across this column by accident that Stein’s crimes are still orders of magnitude less serious than Hillary Clinton’s. So if you were going to vote for Hillary, switching over to Jill remains a great idea. Go for it.
