Three activists apparently protesting agricultural giant Monsanto have been arrested after dumping bags of real cash in a Senate office building.
Police say that one of those arrested was Adam Eidinger, who describes himself on his Twitter feed as a 21-year Washington radical and the co-founder of an online store called Capitol Hemp.
Eidinger has tweeted photos showing him and two women being arrested amid the money. He says he also delivered a mock award to Republican Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri. Monsanto is based in St. Louis.
