Pardon blogger arrested at Democratic debate?

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (CNN) - At a Monday morning breakfast forum following last night Democratic presidential debate, former Colorado Gov. Roy Roemer Romer was jokingly asked if he would pardon fellow-panelist and blogger Eric Alterman.

Roemer quipped, "We'd have to look deeply into that, it's a character issue."

Alterman, a blogger, was arrested by the Goffstown, New Hampshire police Sunday night after reportedly being asked to leave a party which he was not invited to attend.

He was released after paying $30 and said he will fight to have the charges dropped.
Monday's panel on the debate was hosted by the Creative Coalition, a nonpartisan political advocacy group.

Among the speakers were Alterman, Arianna Huffington of HuffingtonPost.com, and CNN Senior Political Analyst Bill Schneider. The panel was moderated was Hollywood producer and West Wing Executive Producer Lawrence O'Donnell.
