Journalists Arrested at Clinton Wedding Site

The quaint Hudson River town of Rhinebeck is all abuzz with Chelsea Clinton wedding preparations and Norwegian journalists in hot pursuit of the big story. On Wednesday, Thomas Bjorn Nilsson and Kjerste Sortland, working for the newspaper Verdens Gang, were charged with trespassing at the Astor Estate where Clinton will be married on July 31. The journalists claim they were only photographing the gate.

We don’t know what really happened. Perhaps the Norwegians didn’t understand US private property laws — but Nilsson lives in New York, so that seems like a stretch. Maybe, more likely, police are being a little overzealous in their protection of this very high-profile wedding?

As the New York State Police spokesman said, “We’re aware of the visit by the former president of the United States and are working with the U.S. Secret Service as we do with all visits by protectees of the Secret Service.” That really says it all.
