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.

Are you one of the more than 370,000 Missourians signed up to take part in the earthquake drill scheduled for the morning of October 17?

The drill teaches participants to "Drop, Cover, and Hold On". Missouri is one of ten states involved. The drill starts at 10:17 AM and takes just 60 second. Oct. 17 is the anniversary of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake in California, which killed 62 people and damaged thousands of buildings.
