In Las Vegas, former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove is again startled by an antiwar activist's attempt at a citizen's arrest.
Organizing a booksigning? You might want to include a beefed-up security detail – if the book is a political tome. Earlier this week, for the second time on his book tour, former White House adviser Karl Rove was faced by an antiwar activist determined to arrest him for "war crimes."
Rove and activist group Code Pink cofounder Jodie Evans first met last month in Beverly Hills, Calif., when Evans confronted Rove in the theater where he had planned to take questions about and autograph copies of his memoir, "Courage and Consequence." In that encounter, Evans approached Rove with handcuffs, announcing that she was performing a citizen's arrest.
The incident rattled Rove enough that he did not stay behind to sign any books.
Then, this week in a Las Vegas bookstore, Evans approached Rove again. She had waited in line with a copy of his book, along with other autograph seekers. When she reached the head of the line, however, she again announced that she intended to arrest Rove.
