Editor’s note: Wednesday night, DeChristopher was released back into regular old prison.

Peaceful Uprising put out the word Tuesday that Tim DeChristopher, still serving his sentence for disrupting a government auction of oil leases, has been transferred to isolated confinement. He’s been there since March 9.

It’s a strange story: Peaceful Uprising says that “Tim was informed by  Lieutenant Weirich that he was being moved to the SHU [the prison’s Special Housing Unit] because an unidentified congressman had called from Washington, D.C., complaining of an email that Tim had sent to a friend.”
