PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - A presidential candidate not only made an appearance in Philadelphia Wednesday, she even got arrested.
At 18th and Market Streets, members of the Green Party chanted at the offices of the Federal National Mortgage Association, better known as Fannie Mae. Among the protestors was the Green Party’s candidate for President, Jill Stein, a doctor from Lexington, Massachusetts.
“Millions have lost their homes already. Many millions are still in the pipeline. We are five years into this crisis and effectively nothing has been done about it.”
Stein and the protestors then staged a sit-in on the floor of a bank on the first floor of the office tower that lasted for several hours. The candidate and four others were eventually arrested.
