Sean Penn campaigns on campus
December 7, 2007 2:13 PM
Students and supporters filled Knuth Hall today to hear actor Sean Penn speak and support Democratic Presidential hopeful and Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich.
Podcast produced by Rosyn Park.
“Today I want to share an article I wrote with you young college men and women,” said Penn. He began reading his article about “What an odd week” it has been for him.
“Vladimir Putin meet with President Bush and Bush said that he had a real sense of his soul by looking at him eye to eye,” said Penn. “And yet Putin goes back and says how dangerous our country is.”
Penn also addressed his support for Kucinich.
“No one on the Democratic congress has the nerve to impeach any of the top U.S. leaders but Kucinich is that voice in the party to do something about it. He’s policy over politeness,” said Penn.
SF State student Monica Salamy enjoyed seeing Penn.
“I thought he was straight to point. He did not bash other candidates. Everyone has a different opinion on how corrupt out country is and it’s good to see another point of view,” said Salamy, 20, a psychology major.
The event was put on by the College Democrats.
