Arresting RoveMay 26, 2009
New York, NY
Thanks to the generosity of CODEPINK NYC, Dana Balicki (National Campaign Coordinator) and I had two tickets to the perfect seats at Radio City Music Hall to stage a citizen's arrest of Rove.
During the heated conversation between Rove and Carville (the Democratic strategist and political consultant for the Clintons) we jumped on stage. I unfurled a banner that said "Arrest Rove! War criminal! codepinkalert. org" that served as a distraction for Dana to walk right up within spitting distance of Rove dangling the cuffs (with the arrest warrant by her side) and saying "Fellow New Yorkers, Karl Rove is under a citizens arrest for treason, election fraud, and lying the world into war!"
We went out shouting "Arrest Rove!" and "War Criminal!" Dana lost her shoe in the action (later retrieved.) Unfortunately we weren't able to take any photos and haven't been able to find any online!
