John McCain, the former maverick, who is currently campaigning for his fifth six-year senate term, was confronted by a protester at the conclusion of the only scheduled televised debate with three challengers in the upcoming election. Democrat Rodney Glassman, Green Party candidate Jerry Joslyn and Libertarian candidate David Nolan all participated.
The protester, an unidentified woman exercising her First Amendment rights, held up a sign and chanted “John McCain has got to go!” as she approached McCain, who was leaving the KTVK-3 TV studios in Phoenix. McCain’s security team tackled her, knocking her to the ground. (Watch CNN video clip on link). The woman was wearing a t-shirt that read “Do I look undocumented?” and continued to chant.
