    ORLANDO, Fla. -- A group of protestors stormed and then ransacked a Bush-Cheney headquarters building in Orlando, Fla., Tuesday, according to Local 6 News

    Protestors Storm, Ransack Bush-Cheney Headquarters In Orlando


    Local 6 News reported that several people from the group of 100 Orlando protestors face possible assault charges after the group forced their way inside the Republican headquarters office.

    While in the building, some of the protestors drew horns and a mustache on a poster of President George W. Bush and poured piles of letters in the office, according to the report.

    "We told them to leave, they broke the law," Republican headquarters volunteer Mike Broom said.

    Two protestors received minor injuries when the crowd stormed the building, including a Republican volunteer.

    One of the protestors said she wanted to send a message.

    "We want to send a clear message to Bush, we want him to take his hands off our overtime pay," protestor Esmeralda Heuilar said.


    Local 6 News learned that most of the protestors were from the AFL-CIO and were taking part in one of 20 other coordinated protests around the country.

    A spokesperson with the AFL-CIO told Local 6 News that the Orlando protest did not go as planned.

    A protest similar to Orlando's demonstration was held at a Bush-Cheney office in Miami at the same approximate time, Local 6 News reported.

    What's the difference? On either side for that matter, in my eyes all of these 527's are operating with tacit approval from their respective parties.

    I agree, it was really meant as more of a smart-ass comment/rhetorical question than an actual question though.

    Funny, that's how Al Quaeda wants to strike us on American soil...
