Congressman Al Green Arrested yesterday and honored today [View all]
Yesterday, Houston Congressman Al Green was arrested together with George Clooney at a protest at the embassy for Sudan. This morning Congressman Green was given a standing ovation for his actions at a fund raiser for the Fort Bend Silver Democrats and the Fort Bend Suburban Southwest Texas Democratic Women. Congressman Green joked about the number of people who called for Clooney's number.
BTW, the turnout at this event was great. The Silver Democrats and Suburban Southwest Texas Democratic Women sold all of the available tickets for this event. There were some fun jokes about all of the cars with Obama 2012 bumper stickers in the parking lot of the Sweetwater Country Club.
Here in Fort Bend County, we are proud of the actions taken by Congressmen Green and let him know it.
