Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein has been charged with criminal trespass and criminal mischief by the Morton County State’s Attorney’s office.
A warrant has been issued for her arrest.
Stein spray painted the blade of a bulldozer at a protest site Tuesday morning with the words “I approve this message.”
A press release from Morton County claims Stein and Vice-Presidential candidate Ajamu Baraka entered posted private property Tuesday.
Barka is also charged with the same crimes. Authorities say he spray painted the front of a bulldozer with word “decolonization.”
The Morton County Sheriff’s Department is actively investigating other unlawful activity from the Tuesday protest.
