Bush Lied, People Died -- photos

September 3, 2004 11:22 AM

Majority Report has exclusive photos of one of the protesters that got into the RNC last night.

Wow...She almost makes Zell-ous look calm! I am impressed though...presumably she spent months preparing for this, volunteering for the RNC, hiding in plain sight for 4 days surrounded by purple heart band-aids.

She was sitting two seats away from Josh Marshall in the press area near the California delegation, so maybe she got a press pass somehow:


An unassuming women had been sitting on our press row for the couple hours prior to the speech. And about half way through out of the corner of my eye I saw a plainclothes police officer lunge in our direction. I looked back to see the woman who -- without my having noticed -- had tossed on a pink slip over her dress and I guess was about to start some sort of chant or statement.

He grabbed her; there was a brief commotion. Other officers rushed in our direction. And then before I could even figure out what was going on, she was gone.


UPDATE 9/6: Boy was I wrong on how she pulled this off. Here's what really happened.
