Two Code Pink Protesters Pose as Media to Try to Get Senate Credentials

Tuesday, December 11, 2007

WASHINGTON — Anti-war demonstrators from Code Pink took a further step in their efforts to protest at the Capitol Tuesday, with two members of the group attempting to apply for media credentials with false information, FOX News has learned.

The two protesters, not dressed in the typical fuchsia used to identify group members at protests, entered the Senate Radio-TV Gallery with an application for credentials that indicated they were documentary workers for Dateline NBC.

A confrontation soon ensued with the gallery director, with the protestors growing more and more belligerent, according to a witness to the events. Eventually the duo, failing to get authorization from the Senate gallery, left the office, only to try the same trick on the other side of the Capitol with the House Radio-TV Gallery. They failed in that endeavor too.

Code Pink protesters often break the rules of the Capitol to impede congressional hearings, disrupt floor proceedings and make their opposition to the war known.

While much of their actions are non-threatening — In October one woman with red stained hands was arrested for approaching Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice at a hearing — the Pinkers appear to be trying more deceptive ruses to subvert Capitol Police authority.
