An Exclusive


At least five were arrested in Lieberman's D.C. office today after engaging in a theatrical demonstration urging Sen. Lieberman to stop taking money from health insurance corporations.

Fake dollar bills were thrown throughout the building. Printed on the money was Lieberman's face and the words "Insurance Money Kills Democracy."

One single-payer advocate protesting marched throughout the building with a cardboard cutout of Lieberman's face yelling, "I've had a change of heart," and scattering the fake money in the hallways and foyer of the building.

Lieberman did not agree to meet with any of the protesters.
