Green Party presidential candidate faces charges for vandalizing pipeline equipment


MANDAN, N.D. — Authorities plan to bring charges against Green Party president candidate Jill Stein after she joined protesters of the Dakota Access Pipeline in spray painting graffiti on equipment at a construction site Tuesday.

Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier said his office is working up information through the state's attorney to pursue charges of trespassing and vandalism against Stein after video of her spray painting the blade of a bulldozer was posted online.

Roughly 150 to 200 protesters descended on the construction site two miles east of State Highway 6 around 10 a.m., and two bound themselves to bulldozers using the same type of casting material used by demonstrators last week.
