OCCUPY GOLF

Protesters Disrupt Boehner’s Golf Game

Fore! House Speaker John Boehner had some surprise visitors at his Newport Beach, Calif., golf game Monday: 50 protesters from the Occupy Wall Street movement. The demonstrators were equipped with bullhorns, drums, and—wait for it—a rented airplane they flew over the golf course with a banner reading “GOP JOBS PLAN = OCCUPY GOLF COURSE? COURAGE CAMPAIGN.” The group picketed outside the golf course where Boehner was participating in the Orange County GOP’s Reagan Cup tournament, urging the Republican leaders to pass President Obama’s blocked jobs plan.
