WADENA -- Two-time vice presidential candidate and Native American activist Winona LaDuke was a wanted woman this week in Wadena County.


According to Wadena County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Bill Cross, LaDuke's Ford pickup was pulled over on U.S. Highway 71 on Nov. 21, and she was cited for not having a current insurance card in her vehicle.

"She failed to make a court appearance or pay her fine," Cross said, leading the judge to issue a bench warrant for her arrest.
