Waukesha officers, Pence workers didn't get democracy memo

[Updated] Negative image-building:
At Pence’s first public event since he was introduced as the Republican vice presidential candidate two weeks ago, a [Washington] Post reporter was barred from entering the venue after security staffers summoned local police to pat him down in a search for his cellphone.
This was in a public venue, mind you, and the local police were Waukesha County Sheriff's deputies on the public payroll.

Even after leaving his computer and cellphone behind - - and the general public was allowed to bring their cellphones into the event - -  the reporter was 'escorted' from it.

Waukesha officials see nothing wrong with their behavior.

Neither does Pence, who ducked the issue with a wordy, non-responsive response.

Your freedom party at work.

From what I hear, it was poorly attended. The Repubs didn't want it leaking out that their candidates are unpopular.

Maybe they did not want you to see how few people were there to support Drumpf & Co.
