From Capital Morning Report
*Todd Chretien*, Green Party candidate for US Senate, accuses the
*Angelides* for Governor campaign of "censoring anti-war students by
cutting them out of a video now on the campaign website because they
believed the Democrat isn't really opposed to the war." According to
*Chretien*, when students arrived at a Sept. 26 rally at SF State to
hold up signs questioning *Angelides'* commitment to ending the war,
"they appeared in the news coverage and the original video the campaign
shot. In order to censor out the anti-war students, the *Angelides*
campaign used footage from an identical speech he gave in Burbank and
then spliced the two together to create the video now seen on his
website." Says *Chretien*, "I think it's shameful that *Phil Angelides*
wanted to use the students of SF State, ... as a back drop for his
campaign. And yet, when those students who, unlike *Angelides*, have
been organizing against the war since the beginning, arrived to express
their opinion, he censored them ... " Contact: Chretien 415 412 4540.
*Chretien* also says *Angelides'* campaign "illegally searched
at a Sacramento City College rally last week, "having campaign staffers
go through students' backpacks before they could enter the free
on-campus, outdoor rally."
--- I say, call the bastard (Chrenien) and ask him why he thinks its more important to hold anti-war rallies at Angelides campaign events than it is to beat Schwarzenegger. While you're at it, ask him how it is that Angelides is insuficiently anti-war given that he is the only Democratic gubenatorial candidate in recent memory to pledge pulling National Guard troops out of Iraq.
