Five protesters just got the eat-the-sidewalk-while-we-cuff-you treatment from arresting officers outside of Ron Paul's Iowa campaign headquarters. "The arrests were made Thursday as demonstrators gathered to protest Paul's proposal to dismantle the Environmental Protection Agency if elected," says the Associated Press. "A spokesman for the group, Occupy the Caucuses, says they arrived at Paul's campaign headquarters to find the doors locked. She said protesters were arrested on charges of trespassing after they refused to leave."
We're not the least bit surprised that Occupy finally found a way to disrupt the Ron Paul Presidential campaign. The Texas Libertarian hero has been quite the bullseye for outrage lately.
