DUARTE ARRESTED FOR HOLDING SIGN AT LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS DEBATE

Tucson, AZ Joe Duarte, Libertarian Candidate for U.S. Congress District 8, was arrested at approximately 5:30 p.m. this evening for holding up a sign protesting the League of Women Voters unlawful exclusion of Libertarian candidates from a televised Gubernatorial debate at Pima Community College.

Mr. Duarte was charged and released. He is due to appear in Pima County Justice Court on September 16 on the following charges:

- Disorderly conduct

- Disruption of an educational institution

The protest stemmed from the Leagues exclusion of the Libertarian (Hess and Fallon) and Independent (Mahoney) candidates, making a mockery of the Leagues supposedly non-partisan stance. As a 501-3c nonprofit, it is illegal for the League of Women Voters to act as a partisan political organization.

Mr. Duarte makes the following statement:

Its outrageous that Libertarians were excluded from the debate. Its even more outrageous that I was arrested for a perfectly peaceful protest. All I did was hold up a sign. The police told me I had two choices: Leave - or put down the sign and stay. I told them Im in America. My choice is clear. So they cuffed me and took me away.
