    Maine Police Arrest Activist Dressed as Bin Laden

    Tuesday, October 31, 2006

    PORTLAND, Maine — The lawyer who divulged President Bush's drunken-driving arrest days before the 2000 election was arrested at gunpoint Tuesday over a Halloween stunt.
    Tom Connolly was wearing a terrorist costume complete with a plastic assault rifle while trying to make a political statement for passing motorists on Interstate 295 in South Portland, police said. They arrested him Tuesday morning and charged him with criminal threatening, a misdemeanor. Initial cash bail was set at $540.
    Connolly was wearing an Usama bin Laden outfit replete with a plastic dynamite belt, plastic grenades and a replica of an AK-47 assault rifle, police said.
    He carried a sign that said "I love TABOR," a reference to the Taxpayer Bill of Rights on the ballot in Maine on Nov. 7. But South Portland Police Chief Ed Googins said one of the people who saw it thought it said "I love the Taliban."
