Valle told Olbermann that the wig was part of the theme of her activist project. "Part of our tactic with Republic Corp is to be Republic Corp executives. And so, I`ve been in costume all week. We filmed videos. And we do events in character," she said. "So, I`ve been in different characters all week for the past two weeks. So, that was me being a Republic Corp executive."
In a conference call with reporters yesterday, she had a different, though not necessarily contradictory answer. "I'm an artist as well as other things," she said. "I've been wearing a lot of wigs down here. I enjoy wearing wigs. Just playing around."
We've put a call in to Valle to explain the discrepancy. You can watch her full appearance on MSNBC below.
