A pair of Rhode Island political hopefuls, who aspired to be The Ocean State’s governor and attorney general, was arrested Thursday after police allegedly uncovered 48 pounds of illegal marijuana in the duo’s West Greenwich home.
State police said they arrested Anne Armstrong, 58, and Alan Gordon, 48 — the Compassion Party’s candidates for governor and attorney general, respectively — after a search at the pair’s home uncovered nearly 50 pounds of marijuana.
“On way to the Wickford barracks under arrest for cannabis again,” Armstrong tweeted Thursday morning from what appeared to be the back of a police cruiser. “I guess our poll numbers were high enough to scare them into committing an atrocity. Pray for our police.”
