THE POLITICAL CLIMATE11/05/02
This past Saturday seven people were arrested for peacefully holding signs and protesting the visit of President George W. Bush to the USF Sundome in Tampa. Our guests were three of the people arrested: Joe Redner, Jeff Marks, and Adam Elend. The trio says they were told they were being arrested for "trespassing on private property", yet they were on the publicly-owned campus of the University of South Florida.
In addition, this program featured an interview with Nova Morgan, a poll trainer at the Pinellas County Democratic Party headquarters. She said there have been several voting problems in the county including long lines for seniors in Dunedin, five poll watchers denied access to the polling place and a refusal to Democratic activists to write down the serial number of voting machines.
