Two protesters try to crash Romney fundraiser but ends in major fail


POLITICO – Two protesters tried to crash a Mitt Romney fundraiser by sailing across a pond — and wound up crashing into a police boat instead, according to a report.

Two men tried to sail across Georgica Pond in the East Hamptons to get access to the fundraiser held at the home of Revlon Inc. Chairman Ronald Perelman, reports The L.A. Times.

East Hampston Village authorities claim that David Fink and Simon Kinsella attempted to cross the police line on the water, ignoring orders to stop, and “subsequently struck” a police boat.

One of the men tried to escape by swimming to shore, and was arrested nearby, while the other was arrested on the boat.

The two were arrested for resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and obstructing government administration, according to the newspaper.

    It’s funny, their support of Obama doesn’t fly and neither do they. Idiots.

    Well, next time I buy makeup, I’ll just head right on over to the Revlon counter. Anyone who does NOT support bo has my business. 🙂

  • Hahaha! One get’s his first bath in 20 years (or so) and the other decided it was better to be arrested than let the water touch him! Idiots!

  • Couldn’t happen to a “nicer” bunch of people. I hope they take those two guys and stick them in a cell with a bunch of gang bangers. I’m sure that will convince them to stay away from a private event the next time around.

    really? He jumped off to make a “break for it” swimming after being stopped by a police boat? I can only imagine the scene. Some of the officers had to be laughing at that guy.
