Margaret Flowers, Green Party candidate for the U.S. in Maryland, interrupted the debate between Democratic Representative Chris Van Hollen and Republican Deligate Kathy Szeliga at the University of Baltimore.

Flowers was excluded from the debate after missing 15 percent of the polling threshold needed to participate. “You say you’re a public university, and you want to educate the public,” Flowers said, “but without having a full public discussion, that doesn’t actually happen. So how does it serve democracy or serve the public if I’m excluded from this discussion if I’m on the ballot?”

After being escorted off the stage by security, she later posted this event on her Facebook Campaign page.
