Cheri Honkala’s computer reportedly confiscated by Customs

image2According to the Green Party of Pennsylvania, Philly activist and former vice-presidential candidate Cheri Honkala had her laptop confiscated by customs agents and doesn’t expect to see it again.

“I attended my son’s wedding and went through customs and my computer was ripped off in customs, I don’t have time to cry about it,” the Kensington resident said in a message to the state’s Green Party.

Honkala’s son is actor and director Mark Webber, known for starring roles in “Storytelling” and “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.” According to the “Tattle” column at the Philadelphia Daily News, Webber married actress Teresa Palmer in Mexico this past weekend.

Webber is well-known for supporting his mother’s work, and even dedicates his entire bio on his IMDB page to his growing up in poverty and working with Honkala to fight homelessness and other human economic travesties.

Attempts to get in touch with Honkala were unsuccessful. But she’s apparently filed a complaint with Customs and police, and is accepting donations for a new computer to continue her work.
