Laundering Lucy: What are the odds that the “Lucy” interviewed by NPR as a Latino woman-on-the street disaffected because Romney hasn’t endorsed the DREAM Act isn’t the same “Lucy” who disrupted Romney’s speech?
Romney’s speech was interrupted by a college student from New York named Lucy, an undocumented immigrant. “Governor Romney,” she yelled, twice, before the crowd broke into applause to drown out her words. She was ushered outside and joined a small group of protesters bearing signs that read “Veto Romney, Not the DREAM Act.”
The NPR reporter gives no indication that “Lucy” is a protester as opposed to a random woman encountered on the sidewalk outside the speech.
