Air America host arrested for disrupting Allen West town hall event
Yahoo ^ | 4/26/11 | Matthew Boyle - The Daily Caller

Posted on 04/26/2011 10:18:30 PM PDT by NormsRevenge

Local police arrested a woman who appears to be former liberal radio network Air America host Nicole Sandler while she was disrupting Rep. Allen West’s Tuesday town hall event in Fort Lauderdale and harassing the Congressman’s wife. According to video obtained by Florida blogger Javier Manjarres, known better online as The Shark Tank, police charged Sandler, who revealed her name on camera, with trespassing after they removed her from the event and she “continued her tirade and used an expletive to address a police officer.”

With Air America now defunct, Sandler hosts a self-described “progressive talk radio” show at RadioOrNot.com.

In video he shot of the town hall, several hecklers Manjarres says were “planted” shouted over West as he began speaking at the event. At least one other man was removed from the event. After the hecklers continued disrupting West’s comments, the freshman Congressman shot back at them: “You’re not going to intimidate me.”

West continued speaking after a police officer removed one man from the room the event was held in. Manjarres reports that, “minutes later,” the ultimately arrested Sandler began harassing West and his wife.

According to the Palm Beach Post, the people who disrupted West’s town hall did so because they were not pleased with his pre-event condition that he’d take only written questions submitted before the event. The Post reports that police escorted two men out of the event and that questions hecklers asked included, “How about our Medicare that you’re stealing?” and “How about allowing questions from the audience?”

“...police charged Sandler, who revealed her name on camera, with trespassing after they removed her from the event and she ‘continued her tirade and used an expletive to address a police officer.’”

As long as she was charged for trespassing, and NOT the use of an expletive, I have no problem with that! We don’t need anymore of a police state than we already have.

Kudos to Rep. West for not caving to the hecklers. And Kudos to the police for doing their job, unlike in Madison!

Was that not a case of over-the-top? They must have had a passle of marxists in there for all the noise they made. I was afraid they were going to shut West down so he couldn’t possibly be heard. Is it against the law to attack these goons for disrupting a public meeting? I mean lay all over them? Is it against the law?

This is such a joke. The Left is trying to manufacture this phony "anger" that isn't out there (at least not like the genuine anger that the Tea Party embodies). The good news is that they look like idiots in the process of throwing their phony tirades.

Moveon and the rest of the Obamanites have issued their people to go to town halls and other events and do just as this twirp did. Expect them to raise Cain everywhere now....it’s their style and they will get nastier as the election kicks up.

She was doing a broadcast from a Big Daddy’s liquor lounge! LOL

Not sure where she’s at but I’ve heard her on a station while I was tuning my radio and I live in Virginia now?

I'd say she just lost, and it doesn't even matter whether the charges stick.

She is in for a real fun time in Broward County jail. I had to bail my brother out of that jail a few times in his younger days. It is a complete hell hole in the worst part of town.

She will be in a big cell with the worst trash, and I can guarantee she won't be running her mouth in there. She also won't be bailed out anytime soon. It takes hours just to get processed.

Such a great performance piece. /s

You can tell she had this all neatly planned out for the press: how she'd act to ensure removal, her tone with the cop to make it seem like he was mistreating her--all of it.

It was choreographed.

I love Rep. Allen West. He is so cool. He’s been shot at serving our county in combat so, he’s not about to let loud-mouth, liberal, losers shut him down.

Despite her whining after her arrest, the fact is she came to disrupt the meeting.

I am amazed at the audience who did not slap the pee out of her and the other loudmouths.

“There should be a hunting season on liberals. Perhaps one day there will be...”

Yes it is called actually prosecuting traitors to our country, Constitution and way of life. From the anarchists destroying property in violent protests, to congressmen who violate the founding documents. Somehow it became possible and then fashionable to get away with that.

A good start would be to “hunt” traitors of all types. Today we would have to start with our President.

Anyone know who was disrupting my Congressman’s townhall (Dan Webster) in Florida? Rumor was it was a move-on.org plants.

I saw on the news last night that people from "progressive groups" disrupted Dan Webster's town hall meeting in Orlando yesterday. On the 15th, a man stood up and started shouting at Marco Rubio during the Tea Party Tax Day event in downtown Orlando. He was removed by the police, but it looks like the disrupters were allowed to stay at Webster's event.

When Alan Grayson had town hall meetings, he made sure there wasn't much room for people who disagreed with him.

That is nice to know and I am glad to hear she will receive some punishment for her actions! My sweetheart and I just happened to end up sitting right next to this "Nicole Sandler" at Congressman West's Town Hall, and Mrs. West was sitting right in front of Nicole Sandler.

My husband and I observed all her actions from the minute Allen West began speaking. This woman began disrupting the meeting by yelling out and it was obvious she was there to do nothing but disrupt the meeting. When politely asked to be quiet she was even more obnoxious. She was then warned by security that if she did not quiet down she would be escorted out. Of course, she continued to yell out so she got the escort out and attention she desired.

You will notice in the video that Sandler claims Mrs. West grabbed her phone. That did not happen. In fact Nicole Sandler grabbed Mrs. West hand when Mrs. West raised it slightly to motion Sandler to please be quiet.

I do expect the MSM to paint Nicole Sandler as just someone wanting her voice/opinions to be heard. She had every opportunity to ask a question but that was not her plan. It was obvious her goal was ONLY to disrupt the meeting and getting the attention of being escorted out was exactly what she wanted. More than likely she would not have been arrested, but she proceeded to be nasty and insulting to the police officers. An arrest was certainly deserved! I now know that Congressman Webster had a Town Hall and a nasty group did everything they could to disrupt that meeting. We can expect this from the DEMrats at all future Town Halls given by Conservatives.

STT, please do me a favor. ALL of us a favor.

If you run into Marco Rubio atone of your rallies, could you please ask him if he has documentation thathis parents were both US citizens at the time of his birth in May, 1971?

I simply can’t gethim to response. I know he doesn’t want to run for anything next year and won’t even discuss the possibility. I have to ask myself if his natural born citizen status-—or lack of it-—could be the reason.

Maybe if someone looked him in the eye and asked him directly he would give a direct answer. Pretty simple stuff, really.

Marco is a patriot and has the makings of a great legislator. If he can proove that his folks were naturalized before his birth, he COULD be fine presidentila material someday-—when he is ready.

But STT, ti be truthful, he could be George Washington and Abe Lincoln rolled into one but if he is not constitutionally eligible, I would rather avoid another Obama controversy.

(Obama is NOT eligible. If his released “long form” is not fake and the listed parents are the real ones, he is not a NBC-—he had a British subject father. NO GOOD per de Vattel, English common law, and Blackstone. None of the authorities current in 1787 would back up 0 as a NBC.)
