Members of the Occupy Tacoma group interrupted Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum during a speech last night at the Washington State History Museum. According to the protester’s Facebook page, three members of their group attempted to “mic check” Mr. Santorum with a lengthy speech criticizing his “abhorrent and medieval” views on women and gays.
“You hold too many bizarre opinions for me to enumerate,” the speech said.
Occupy Tacoma claims two protesters were arrested and one was tased while “protecting” the woman who attempted to read the speech.
