Ex-House candidate Jim Russell arrested for trespassing at Journal News

Journal News

Former congressional candidate Jim Russell was arrested on trespass and harassment violations Thursday after he was spotted on The Journal News property at 1 Gannett Drive in White Plains, NY. He'd been seen on the property a number of times over the past several weeks and had been warned to stay away, according to the newspaper.
A lawsuit that Russell filed last October against the Journal News and other media was dismissed in early July. He claimed the news outlets had defamed him by painting him as a racist because of what he wrote in a 2001 Occidental Quarterly article.
