Hundreds Protest Outside GOP Fundraiser in Wayzata

Influential Republican members of Congress remained out of sight and earshot of protest. Protestors calling for an end to military operations overseas, tax reform, job creation and an end to Wall Street special treatment gathered in front of the Wayzata Country Club Wednesday.
Speaker of the House John Boehner, Congresswoman Michelle Bachman and other featured guests reportedly used a service road to enter the golf course and did not pass by the protestors on their way in.
It was originally announced that Wednesday's fundraiser was to take place at the Spring Hill Golf Club in Orono, but protestors and media got wind at about 10 a.m. that the event would actually be taking place in Wayzata.
Tickets to attend the fundraiser were $1,000 per plate, and $10,000 was supposed to buy a round a golf with Speaker Boehner—although he was not spotted on the course by 12:15 p.m.
