A Mitt Romney fundraiser brought Occupy Wall Street protestors back from the depths of winter for a protest outside the Waldorf-Astoria, where the presidential hopeful was scheduled to host a fundraiser lunch.
Roughly 200 protestors gathered for the "1 Percenters for Romney Rally." The group's site details the instructions targeting the Republican's penchant for the fancy life:
This will be a fun filled 1%ers for Romney rally with people dressed to the nines, ball gowns, suits, top hats and tiaras – and signs that echo Romney’s own words, “Corporations are People too!” as well as “Buy Your Own Politician. Romney’s Mine.” We’ll highlight the nightmare of corporate personhood and the selling of our democracy to the top bidder.
Protestors got creative by dressing up as grim reapers carrying "Job Cutter" scythes and held signs with messages “100 percent out of touch” and "Multimillionaires for Romney." Some even carried blacks urns representing "jobs cremation."
