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.
Campaign manager Ben Manski told the Politico website that they did not intend to disrupt the debate but wanted to talk to reporters about the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates' requirement that each candidate garner at least 15 percent in national polls to be admitted to the debates.
