Diane Wilson was arrested in Texas last night, while protesting at Tom Delay’s fundraising dinner with CodePink. We are still peicing together details, but The Houston Chronicle reported this morning:
> At least one protester infiltrated the event. Diane Wilson of the
> progressive women’s group Code Pink said she paid only $50.
> “I guess they needed people inside,” she said. “You can get in pretty
> cheap. I didn’t want to give too much.”
> She briefly disrupted Cheney’s speech and rolled out a banner that
> reads: “Corrupt greed kills from Bhopal to Baghdad.”
> Wilson was promptly escorted out.
As of this morning Minda and Alice have been in contact with Diane’s daughter, who has been trying to reach Diane through the Harris County Jail. We’ll be posting a press release as soon as we receive more information, but so far the key players seem to be:
Harris County Sherrif Tommy Thomas
US Senator Tom Delay
