We Tried to Arrest Rove Last Night at Radio City Music Hall


By Rae Abileah

Tonight, thanks to the generosity of CODEPINK NYC, Dana and I had two tickets to the perfect seats at Radio City to stage a citizens 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 debacle.

Accountability and onward!

Rove is a key to this sordid episode in American history, so this arrest attempt is really monumental. You guys did great! Thank you!
