Prominent Dems Share Stage With 9/11 Conspiracy Theorist

Wisconsin Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders have come under fire for sharing a stage with a progressive activist who is a 9/11 conspiracy theorist.

Sanders appeared alongside Baldwin and other Democrats Monday at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, urging people to vote for Democrats in the upcoming November midterm election and support Baldwin’s re-election against Republican Leah Vukmir.

But before Baldwin and Sanders took the stage, a Chicago-based progressive activist and hip-hop artist known as Solo Littlejohn warmed up the crowd.

He introduced himself as a “leader of Fight For 15,” a Sanders-backed group campaigning for a $15 minimum wage and trade unions, and went on to praise the progressive politicians for supporting his cause.
