Code Pinkertons Force Rove Offstage

Karl Rove was forced offstage by Code Pink activists at a book signing in Beverly Hills:

About 100 Rove supporters watched Monday as Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans walked toward him with handcuffs, calling him a war criminal and saying she was making a citizen’s arrest.

Ten protesters in all repeatedly interrupted Rove’s talk at the Saban Theatre as he promoted his memoir, “Courage and Consequence: My Life As a Conservative in the Fight.”

Rove says the allegation that the Bush administration lied about weapons of mass destruction “is a pernicious political attack launched by cynical and hypocritical individuals.”

There were no arrests.
