As Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown prepare for their final gubernatorial debate, the Green Party candidate for governor, Laura Wells, has been arrested outside the debate site.
Wells was protesting her exclusion from Tuesday’s debate, according to a spokeswoman.
“Laura Wells got arrested to help put the unemployed back to work, and to save the planet from climate change,” said Marnie Glickman, co-chair of the Green Party of Marin County. “Wells stood up for the people whom Democrats and Republicans have forsaken: the unemployed, workers, children, and people whose homes have been foreclosed.”
