Here’s a brief update to Michelle’s post about Lansing, Michigan hot dog vendor Clint Tarver, who had been hired by Americans for Prosperity to serve hot dogs outside their now shredded tent during Tuesday’s union protest near the Capitol Building.

Lee Stranahan at Breitbart News interviewed “the hot dog guy” as the upbeat Tarver is known in these parts, and has more on the story:

When reporter Lee Stranahan describes a Guy Fawkes mask, Tarver indicates that it sounds like that is what the assailant wore. Tarver was shown a photo of a Guy Fawkes mask after the interview and confirmed that it what the attacker who kicked over coffee machines and began attacking the tent with a box cutter, was wearing.
[…]
Tarver was trapped in the tent as it was knocked down from the outside by an unruly mob of union proponents. He dismissed the conspiracy theory that AFP employees were in any way responsible for the destruction of the tent.

Tarver also says he was called racial epithets by other union attackers, including the “N” word and “Uncle Tom.” Tarver says he’s never been called such things in his 17 years as a hot dog vendor. His wife expressed her digust that union workers stood around with their hands in their pockets while Tarver attempted to pick up his catering equipment and other items.

Video of the interview is here.

Otherwise, Tuesday’s protest was… all together nowmostly peaceful.

A fund started to help Tarver replace his equipment that had an original goal of $2,000 is now up to over $25,000.
