What If: Could Gary Johnson get hot and play the spoiler?

One possible charge could be for trespassing and another for vandalism, though it's not yet known whether these would be felony or misdemeanor charges. Standing Rock Sioux Chairman David Archambault II is disappointed with the decision, which he says still "does not prevent Dakota Access Pipeline from destroying our sacred sites" while they wait for Friday's ruling. The tribe is also challenging the pipeline, which is expected to go through four states, in federal court. The company Energy Transfer Partners is behind the pipeline construction, though its unclear whom specifically the bulldozer belongs to or which site she was on. She was charged in 2012 for protesting outside of a debate to which she hadn't been invited.

Kudos to Stein for putting her money where her mouth is and drawing attention to this most fucky of government fuckery.

Authorities in North Dakota are investigating possible charges against U.S. Green Party presidential candidate for allegedly damaging equipment during protests on Tuesday over construction of an oil pipeline in the state.

In her statement, Stein blasted North Dakota law enforcement and the Dakota Access pipeline, calling the spray-painting an act of "civil disobedience".

The sheriff's office told CNN the activists wounded Dakota Access Pipeline guards and dogs Saturday, an account the protesters refuted with stories of being pepper sprayed.

The incidents overshadowed Stein's interview with the editorial board of the Los Angeles Times, which was published Tuesday. The project, according to CBS News, is opposed by members of the Standing Rock Sioux Native American tribe, out of concerns over its impact to drinking water, and disturbance of sacred sites. Tuesday, U.S. Judge James Boasberg temporarily stopped some of the construction on the project.

An online survey released Thursday from Morning Consult found 52 percent of voters support including Johnson in the debates; 47 percent support an invitation to Stein.

They say it would pass through or near sensitive water bodies, risking the water quality, and the oil it would carry would be harmful to the climate. Johnson, a former Republican, has benefited from Donald Trump's departure from GOP orthodoxy and from Bernie Sanders' strong primary campaign, with some voters who supported Sanders refusing Clinton and looking for options.
