Holding Politicians Accountable

6 notes

What did campaign reform supporters in New York to today when they were blocked from attending a hearing called by New York Senate Republicans? They found a window.
New York Daily News:

Protestors were literally coming in through the windows at today’s state Senate hearing on the New York City campaign finance system.
Shut out of the cramped hearing room by the Senate’s sergeants at arms, a group of election-reform protestors eventually grew tired of shouting in the hallway and  tried to disrupt the session via the room’s first floor windows. A few protestors did manage to stick their heads in and chant “Let People In” before officials closed the window. They also threw dollar bills inside as a symbol of the money in politics.
