[10/31/17] Shareblue Media reporter violently arrested while covering GOP nominee for Virginia governor

Shareblue Media reporter Mike Stark has been harassed, ejected from public events, and prevented from covering Republican Ed Gillespie’s campaign for governor of Virginia. After months of being harassed by Ed Gillespie’s campaign for simply trying to ask the Republican gubernatorial nominee questions, Shareblue Media reporter Mike Stark was violently arrested Saturday while filming the annual Annandale parade. Gillespie has repeatedly dodged questions from Stark about his increasingly racist campaign, uncomfortable endorsement from Donald Trump, and his use of his position in the Bush White House to do the bidding of his corporate lobbying clients. Meanwhile, Gillespie has just a week left in the campaign to hide from tough questions about his total capitulation to white supremacists and shady corporate lobbying practices. Hours after being released from the Fairfax County jail, Stark was waiting in the hallway of a strip mall, where Gillespie had a public event to talk to the Virginians whose votes he needs on Nov. 7.
