Nuts trying to intimidate GOP workers/supporters nationwide
My God. What is going on here?
Bush-Cheney campaign workers in three Florida cities said they were intimidated by chanting labor union activists who showed up unwelcomed in their offices on Tuesday, protesting changes pushed by the Bush administration on overtime pay.
Dozens of union activists showed up at the Bush-Cheney campaign offices in Miami, Orlando and Tampa to deliver postcards from people opposed to the Bush administration regulations that they claim would threaten the overtime payments of chefs, nurses, police officers, journalists, athletic trainers, lower-level computer employees.
Similar protests organized by labor unions occurred in other cities around the nation.
A criminal complaint was filed with the Orlando Police Department after Rhyan Metzler, a field director for the Republican Party of Florida in Orlando, said his wrist was sprained while he was trying to stop protesters from getting through the office door. About 50 of the 120 protesters in Orlando got into the office.
The head of another campaign worker was slammed against the glass door, Metzler said.
“I locked the door to keep them from coming in. I asked them to leave,” Metzler said. “I told them they were trespassing, that I had called the police and that if they didn’t leave I would have them prosecuted.”
Then there was also this story. And this one. And here as well.
