Reporting from Clive, Iowa — Protesters associated with the Occupy Wall Street movement disrupted a campaign event held by Mitt Romney, a frequent occurrence at several candidates' appearances in the run-up to the Iowa caucuses.
Romney was several minutes into his standard stump speech when a protestor yelled, "Mic Check!" It was difficult to hear the man, but he yelled something about Romney's corporate ties. Romney's supporters, several hundred people packed into a manufacturing plant, yelled, "Mitt is it! Mitt! Mitt! Mitt!"
Romney thanked them and said, "Let's talk about the Constitution again."
The protesters responded by bringing up a recent Supreme Court decision that allows donors to give as much money as they want to certain political organizations without disclosing their identities.
"Citizens United is not part of the Constitution!" the protestor said. Other protesters called for reducing spending on wars and ending what they say is the war on the poor.
