Angry budget protesters became so rowdy last night at a local Wisconsin town hall meeting that the meeting's leader was forced to shut it down. That created even more anger, as protesters showered the local politicians in attendance with boos and chants of "Shame! Shame! Shame!"
One man become so unhinged he stood up and began shouting and pointing fingers, accusing the meeting's head of trying to stifle debate. He ended his rant by screaming, "Power to the people!"
Local news station WTMJ reports on what happened:
Budget protesters shut down a town hall meeting in Wauwatosa.
"Shame, shame, shame" were among the words that came out of protesters mouths as the meeting ended, according to a video taken at the meeting that was placed on YouTube.
Menomonee Falls Republican Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner and Wauwatosa Republican State Senator Leah Vukmir were hosting the events at the Wauwatosa Library.
Sensenbrenner's office provided WTMJ with a statement saying the rowdy protesters were asked repeatedly to respect other meeting attendees as well as library patrons. They refused:
"Congressman Sensenbrenner and the Wauwatosa library director repeatedly asked individuals attending last night's Town Hall Meeting to be respectful as other patrons were using the library. After numerous requests for attendees to listen to the individual speaking and be mindful of other library patrons were ignored, the meeting was adjourned.
"It is unfortunate that the same respect given at Congressman Sensenbrenner's Town Hall Meeting in Brookfield Sunday evening wasn't experienced last night, and individuals who were patiently waiting to ask a question, receive help with casework or share their concern were unable to do so at the meeting.
"Congressman Sensenbrenner invites those individuals to call his office or send him and email and he will get a response to them. "
