Jimmy Vielkind in Capitol Confidential reports that Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares talked with Keith Olbermann, the former MSNBC host whose show “Countdown” now airs on Current TV last night and confirmed he was not prosecuting Occupy Albany protesters arrested for trespassing or other violations. “The concern was law enforcement locally sparking greater interest and sparking, quite frankly, a fuse we wouldn’t be able to control,” Soares said. “Things have been fine, and the relationship couldn’t be better.” Occupy Albany protesters have been in that park since last Friday, Oct. 21. Occupy Wall Street protesters began round-the-clock actions Sept. 17. Watch the video from Current TV above, or read the full story in Capitol Confidential.
