I am such a bad MO-FO that apparently I can take a swing at a St. Paul Republican delegate and candidate for congress and the St. Paul police (who have no love for protesters) just decided to let me go. At least that is what Ed Matthews, who is running for Minnesota’s 4th congressional district is telling reporters.

I’ve posted the real story as well as two videos about how I was mugged at the RNC by a Republican Candidate for Congress, Ed Matthews while performing street theater. Check out my group’s website

Unfortunately I was upstaged by Jon Voight. It seems like the folks who were taking video of us turned their cameras onto Voight as he walked by and missed Matthews grabbing my mask.

If you witnessed Matthews coming at me and grabbing my mask (especially if you have photos or video) please contact me at sideshowjeff [at]

Matthews’ is obviously trying to cover his ass but he could still try and press charges.
