I guess most readers here would be familiar with the protests of crypto Marxist groups like Code Pink who have frequently upset any number of official government ceremonies in the US House of Representatives but apparently remain immune to arrest. Not so the protester Theresa Cao who questioned Obama’s eligibility during the reading of the Constitution when the House was opened this year. As Rep. Frank Pallone read the Constitutional requirements for a United States president, Theresa called out from the gallery, “Except Obama, except Obama”.
She was arrested on the spot and made to appear in court for her protest where she was told by her court appointed attorney to accept a plea bargain. She was asked in a recent interview-
Considering the fact that Marxist Code Pink and Cindy Sheehan have disrupted the US House of Representatives on multiple occasions, with only escorts out of the building, how shocked were you that you seemed to be targeted and singled out for arrest?
Theresa replied that she had asked her court appointed defender to research this aspect of the case, and use the facts in her defence, but the defender had refused and directed her to accept a plea bargain by pleading guilty to a charge of “unlawful conduct”. Theresa says her attorney stated in both instances that these plea deals would not implicate her case as “Guilty” but would be considered “Not Guilty”, however it would include 40 hours of community service, and 6-9-12 months of probation, with a promise of “Good Behavior.” She would not be able to speak about her Constitutional rights.
Therea has rejected the offer, and is currently searching for a new attorney who will defend her vigorously using her first amendment rights and the issue of Obama’s Constitutional ineligibility. Good luck in that quest Theresa. You’ll need it.
