Green Party candidate avoids charges for crashing Marin debate
Source: San Jose Mercury News

SAN RAFAEL -- Laura Wells, the Green Party candidate for California governor, will face no legal consequences for attempting to attend the debate between Jerry Brown and Meg Whitman at Dominican University last month using someone else's ticket.
"We decided not to file a complaint in the interest of justice, determining that her removal from the premises adequately resolved the violation," said Kevin O'Hara, Marin County deputy district attorney. He said he consulted with officials at Dominican University before making his decision.

2. I would prefer to see the private party put on trial.

3. Oh my GOD the horror
A candidate showing up to a debate, un-annointed by the powers that be.
