Yesterday, a federal judge ruled that Haley could restrict Occupy Columbia from overnight use of state property. The ruling sharply limits the demonstration that’s lasted for about 10 weeks, during which has the group faced many obstacles from the governor.
On Nov. 16, Haley gave the organization two-hour notice that it must clear from State House grounds after 6 p.m. That evening, after 33 days of presence at the Gervais St. facility, 19 participants were arrested by the state’s Bureau of Protective Service and the Dept. of Public Safety.
Just five days later, the group returned, this time with support from the city’s mayor, who had denied the governor’s request for aid from Columbia police on Nov. 16. Occupy Columbia also filed a restraining order against Haley on Nov. 22.
Guest-hosting tonight’s show for regular “Power Hour” host Lopez Martinez will be David Calef, whose regular "Inside Politics" show airs Sundays at 6 p.m. on the same station.
Corbett and Hakim spoke on “Power Hour” with host Calef on Nov. 25.
