Protestors dump bags of cash in US Senate building

Thursday, 10 October 2013 17:21 Published in National News

WASHINGTON (AP) - Three activists apparently protesting agricultural giant Monsanto have been arrested after dumping bags of real cash in a Senate office building.

Capitol Police said Thursday that three protesters dumped the money in the atrium of the Hart Senate Office Building and were arrested on disturbance charges.

Police say that one of those arrested was Adam Eidinger, who describes himself on his Twitter feed as a 21-year Washington radical and the co-founder of an online store called Capitol Hemp.

Eidinger has tweeted photos showing him and two women being arrested amid the money. He says he also delivered a mock award to Republican Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri. Monsanto is based in St. Louis.
