Former Dem Congressmen Pepper Sprayed During Union Protest

Battle Creek Enquirer: Former congressman Mark Schauer said he was pepper-sprayed by police today while leading anti-right to work protesters outside the state Capitol. Schauer said he was part of a crowd of protesters outside the Capitol’s north wing as the Michigan House was voting on controversial right-to-work measures. Schauer said police came to move the protesters away from the building. He said he tried to negotiate a line away from the Capitol that police would accept when he and “a number” of people were sprayed.

Schauer, a former state lawmaker and congressman from Calhoun County, was in Lansing as a member of the Laborers union Local 355 and a representative of the Michigan Laborers-Employees Cooperation and Education Trust Funds.
