Political Wire has learned that Connecticut U.S. Senate candidate Ned Lamont's (D) campaign manager, Tom Swan, took part in an early 1990s protest at the offices of Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D-CT) and was arrested after the senator called Capitol Hill police. Swan and his fellow protesters were physically dragged from the office.So. Tom Swan felt strongly enough about Sen. Lieberman's right-wing conservative stance against universal health care that he allowed himself to be arrested for it?
Lamont's campaign confirms the story but calls the event a "coordinated action" of "civil disobedience" targeting multiple lawmakers. "It was also one of a series of actions due to the instrumental role Senator Lieberman played in killing universal health care. Not only did he not support it, he helped kill it."
I knew there was a reason why I like this guy!
