John Boehner's Wayzata golf outing protested [PICTURES]
U.S. Speaker of the House John Boehner took a trip to Minnesota's suburbs yesterday to play golf and rub elbows with some of our state's mega-rich donors.
On the heels of an epic bipartisan standoff in Congress, not everyone at the golf outing was there to welcome Boehner.
Hundreds of protesters rallied outside the Wayzata Country Club to criticize the Speaker, blaming the Ohio Congressman and his fellow Republicans for Minnesota's unemployment problems.
Here are a few pictures from the protest:
Busloads of protestors showed up to call out the Republican Congressmembers. We're guessing none of these people went for the $10,000 lunch and round of golf with the Speaker.
U.S. Reps. Michele Bachmann, John Kline, and Erik Paulsen were also on the guest list. Don't they look happy?
Michele Bachmann rolls in style.
The protester theorem.
