The Arrest of Keith Ellison

Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, along with Donna Edwards (D-MD), John Lewis (D-GA), and Lynn Woolsey (D-CA) were led away from the Sudanese embassy in handcuffs Monday after crossing a police line. The activists were protesting Sudan's expulsion of aid groups from the Darfur region. Ellison said "it is wrong to deny aid to what he calls 'the most vulnerable people on our planet.'

Make one proud to be from Minnesota.

And proud you should be of Mr. Ellison, Gunnar. I didn't see any photos of Quart-Low Coleman at the Sudanese embassy. Guess he was too busy looking for votes to con some judges to get send him back to D.C. (D._ick C._haney).
