It figures, my blog is the last place you’ll read about my arrest and subsequent incarceration after attending Allen West’s so-called Town Hall Meeting last night.
Since I spent last night in jail and, thanks to the sickeningly awful people at the Broward County Jail was subjected to three hours in solitary confinement in a 7×10 room, and then maced. Nice, huh?
Anyway, I’ll have more on how it all unfolded on the show tomorrow, and then in a lengthier written piece after I get some rest, food and a shower.
But I do want to clear something up. The video that’s floating around portraying me as a heckler doesn’t show the Medicare question that Mr. West was asked, the way he answered it, and my FOLLOW-UP question.
So, here’s how it actually happened:
Being arrested for speaking your mind at a political event is not unprecedented. I would guess that it's happened to a few of you. (It's not common to maced while in custody --- but I can't say I'm surprised that it happened to a female liberal talk show host. That's just how the authoritarians roll.)
