Beat the Press

Private security guards working for Alaska Tea Party candidate Joe Miller detained and handcuffed a blogger
who was asking questions at a public campaign event in a public school Sunday. Here is remarkable video
from the Anchorage Daily News of the security guards trying to strongarm other reporters at the same event. Miller told CNN
the blogger was "hounding" him.
Miller told reporters last week that he would no longer answer questions
about his background or his personal life, after he was hit with questions about why he lost his job as a government lawyer. Miller currently is polling even
with incumbent candidate Lisa Murkowski, whom he beat in the Republican primary and who is running as a write in. The Dem trails in third place.
