More Hope and Change…
One of Barack Obama’s top 500 bundlers who raised nearly $100,000 for the Democratic Candidate rushed the stage during the Sarah Palin speech tonight at Xcel Center.

Keep It Classy Democrats!
The Washington Post reported:

One of Barack Obama’s elite fundraisers from the anti-American group Code Pink attempted to storm the stage last night during Republican vice presidential nominee Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s acceptance speech at the GOP convention in St. Paul.

Jodie Evans, one of a group of about 500 top financiers who have bundled tens of thousands of dollars for the Obama campaign was seized by the Secret Service after she had made her way to side of the stage and and started to yell at Palin.

10:45 p.m. A pair of Code Pink activists just got to the very edge of the stage and were a moment away from apparently running on stage, right by the Kentucky slot on the floor next to a host of McCain’s most senior staffers.

Secret Service men grabbed them at last minute and literally dragged them out.

Evans has bundled between $50,000 and $100,000 for Obama as well as contributing the maximum $2300 to Obama’s presidential primary campaign. She co-hosted Obama’s breakout Hollywood fundraiser at the start of his campaign in February 2007.

As a bundler, Evans has been given perks that include regular briefings by top campaign staffers on policy and private meetings with Obama and his vice presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Hat Tip Bill Nelson

Once again, the question must be asked– How did Jodi Evans and Medea Benjamin ever get into the convention?

    These people should be called out for what they are, Free Speech Thieves.

    Free speech is not good enough for them. They are pissed off that nobody wants to hear their broken message, so they have to try and steal our attention from events that we want to attend.

    These two should be put away in jail for a while. Giving them free passes just makes them bolder.

    I want to echo another commenter. How do these easily recognizable women dressed in overdone pink get into many events ? Who enables them gettting passes ? Who does not see them till the last second, like the bloody hand in Condi’s face. Do they have a record ? What could they be charged with.
    They should have a long record of misdemeanors at least that could be used to to up these charges.

    What a bunch of bunk.
    You people are so far out in space
    it is not even funny.
    And I am a Republican !
    You make me ashamed with all your lies
    and scare tactics. Are you afraid we can not win on the issues?
    Yes, I am beginning to believe Mr. Obama is right. Things definitely need a changin’.
    I am off right now to donate to the Obama campaign and he just won my vote.
    Keep up the good work.

[...] Top Obama Bundler Leads Protest Singing: “Sarah Palin… You’ll save a fetus in the womb and send it off to war!” Category: PPC, democratic national convention — Gateway Pundit @ 1:21 pm Yesterday, Barack Obama’s top bundler Jodie Evans attempted to storm the stage during Sarah Palin’s talk at the RNC Convention. Fellow Code Pink cofounder Marxist Medea Benjamin was also dragged off the convention floor screaming. Benjamin also interrupted the convention in 2004 when she attacked Vice President Dick Cheney. (SFGate) One of Barack Obama’s Top 500 Bundlers who has raised nearly $100,000 for the Democratic Candidate, led a group of Code Pink protesters down the streets of St. Paul today singing: “Sarah Palin… You’ll save a fetus in the womb and send it off to war!” TwinCities.com reported: Singing “Sarah Palin, we know what you stand for, you’ll save a fetus in the womb and send it off to war,” a couple of dozen pink-clad members of Code Pink, a women-led peace organization, took a short protest march this afternoon from the St. Paul Hotel to Rice Park. Group co-founder Jodie Evans complained that police response to her group’s protests this week have been “snarky” and “violent” including an arrest of one member Monday night. She also said mounted police pushed her group away from Palin’s Minneapolis hotel Wednesday with their horses. “How scary do we look? It’s a really mean way to treat women dressed in pink,” Evans said. Keep It Classy, Democrats. QUESTION: Does this mean that Code Pink believes that a fetus is a life— But, would “choose” to kill it anyway? Previously: TOP OBAMA BUNDLER Storms Stage During Palin Speech!!! [...]
