Hundreds of protesters flocked to the U.S. Capitol Monday for a demonstration against the role of money in politics, prompting arrests of more than 400 by the Capitol police force.
The demonstration was part of a series of "Democracy Spring" protests planned in Washington this week by a coalition of groups.
The demonstrators chanted slogans like "one person, one vote" and "money out of politics" as they sat on the East Front of the Capitol. One sign read "Things go better without Koch," a reference to the billionaire businessmen David and Charles Koch, who have promised to lead an almost $900 million campaign to back favored candidates this election cycle.

Well, money out of conservative politics maybe. Because the progs need money to fight for the right to not be offended and we all know how much it costs to install safe spaces for the snowflakes.
Most of them are left over Occupy Wall street idiots.
So they support checking Voter ID at the ballot box? Huzzah!!
They should have gone on spring break instead.. Or gone to hawaii or some place .. But NOOOoOOOoOooO..
It helps those 2500 Capitol Poe-leece to earn their keep.
If the bastard politicians want more revenue, why don’t they start fining all of these ***holes who participate in these illegal protests.
This country is slowly but surely turning into a tinderbox.
I guess the protesters learned the hard way that our Lourds and Masters are surrounded by their own little taxpayer provided Army.
Wonder why they are so fearful...humm?
And dear fellow Freeper “Who will pay the fines?”
I don’t like them unreasonable occupy types much, but if they’re givin’ the feds hell, good for them, for the day.
They can pass a law allowing the clowns to use their EBT cards. Works for me.
Well, money out of conservative politics maybe.
Absolutely correct. Overturning the Citizens United supreme court decision, shutting up Republicans and enabling unions, is the goal.
Burn baby burn.
May as well be arrested; not doing anything anyway.
One person one vote, the democrats would lose
All staged Alinsky agitprop.
Dammit, don't write it like that. I spent a full five minutes trying to pronounce it the way you wrote it.
Arrested 400, released 400. There are no consequences for these parasites.
These people are being paid to agitate, just as people will be paid to agitate in Cleveland.
Please don’t be so quick to dismiss those being arrested. The FEMA sites are primed and ready for mass arrests. They didn’t prepare them to sit empty.
