Ferguson is charged with entering a meeting that she believed was a Trump rally in Amherst Junction, Wisconsin on Monday October 17 shouting her contempt for the GOP nominee. She was holding a “family-size jar of low-sodium, creamy natural Jif.” It turned out to be a meeting of the local environmental organization, Tomorrow River Conservation Club. When one member went outside, Ferguson was seen smearing peanut butter on a car.
The complaint describes how Ferguson denied leaving her apartment while licking her fingers. Not the best criminal defense argument. She later reportedly acknowledged that she was motivated by “how much she loved Hillary Clinton and hated Donald Trump” and reportedly added “Peanut buttering is better than firebombing, and Trump plans on firebombing everybody in other countries.” Putting aside anaphylactic shock, there is little to argue with that point, but it is still a crime.
Not surprisingly, Ferguson’s blood alcohol level was 0.218, more than twice the legal limit for driving.
She is now charged with disorderly conduct.
