Local 6 News reported that several people from the group of 100 Orlando protestors face possible assault charges after the group forced their way inside the Republican headquarters office.
While in the building, some of the protestors drew horns and a mustache on a poster of President George W. Bush and poured piles of letters in the office, according to the report.
"We told them to leave, they broke the law," Republican headquarters volunteer Mike Broom said.
Two protestors received minor injuries when the crowd stormed the building, including a Republican volunteer.
One of the protestors said she wanted to send a message.
"We want to send a clear message to Bush, we want him to take his hands off our overtime pay," protestor Esmeralda Heuilar said.
Local 6 News learned that most of the protestors were from the AFL-CIO and were taking part in one of 20 other coordinated protests around the country.
A spokesperson with the AFL-CIO told Local 6 News that the Orlando protest did not go as planned.
A protest similar to Orlando's demonstration was held at a Bush-Cheney office in Miami at the same approximate time, Local 6 News reported.
Watch Local 6 News for more on this story.
Vid footage notes that this was one of 20 cities where AFL- CIO had simulataneous demonstrations, and that there were similar problems in Miami.
Perhaps we're seeing a preview of what conservatives can expect to see more of during a Kerry Administration.
This won't win any votes for Kerry, so I'm tempted to say let'em show their true colors as long as no one gets seriously hurt.
Let's hear it for "tolerance and diversity".
Notice how these break-ins are timed during the debates? After this election is over, I hope a large number of Democrats and activist scum end up serving in prison for the next few elections.
this also happened in Milwaukee today. just happened to have TV cameras in tow.
Don'tcha just love those peace-nik Rats.
We're talking possible RICO violations. Action timed to take place at several other places. Conspiracy.
Like the Brown Shirts of the 30's.
hmmmmmm - after the fashion of genghis khan?
The message is that they are ready to riot if they can't steal this election.
Thanks for pulling my duplicate post. :-)

Its going to get much worse on the night of Nov 2 and the days afterwards. They will not take the country voting for Bush/Cheney laying down. Watch for protests and violence to errupt in all major cities.
The Democrats have spent the past two years whipping their base up in to foaming at the mouth frenzy. That's why we are seeing headquarters being stormed and shot at, personal property being vandalized, and teachers being fired for displying a picture of the current President. This divide is going to get worse before the Democrat party finally collapses.
Watch for any violence or vandalism done against the Democrats to be played up as something new. The MSM will ignore gunshots and ransackings when done by Dems but anything mildly close to that done by Reps will be exploited by the MSM to taint the President.
Sounds like a conspiracy! Who arranged all these simultaneous demonstrations??? Don't let the corrupt MSM bury this story!
Here's some quotes from another article about this.
"Countered South Florida AFL-CIO president Fred Frost: "It was as civil as it gets.'"
"Debra Booth, president of the Central Florida AFL-CIO, described the protest as "peaceful'"
If there are any union members in florida here, you may want to contact these people to let them know what you think.
Debra Booth - Central Florida AFL-CIO (407) 649-8557
Here's an e-mail for Fred Frost's branch
And here's an email for journalist Mark Schlueb at the Orlando Sentinel newspaper.
I think that we need to catalogue all of the violence that has been directed at the Bush campaign. It would be a long list, but telling.
"that this was one of 20 cities where AFL- CIO had simulataneous demonstrations, "
From the article.
AFL-CIO has som splainin to do
where are the police?
First, it's stealing laptops, then shooting out windows. Now it's storming buildings. What's next? Hostage taking or car bombs?
Sounds like the Bolsheviks storming the winter palace in 1920something.
