Hilarious Photos Of Protesters Crashing Mitt Romney’s Fancy Hamptons Fundraisers

via Business Insider:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney had some uninvited guests at his fundraisers in the Hamptons this weekend, as critics protesting the Republican candidate descended on the swanky seaside enclave. 

AP photographer Kathy Kmonicek got some memorable images of the gatecrashers — which included representatives from MoveOn.org, the Occupy Movement and the Long Island Progressive Coalition — as they lined up along Meadow Lane in Southampton, where controversial billionaire David Koch hosted a $50,000-per-head fundraiser for Romney on Sunday afternoon.

The protests prompting some hilarious confrontations with Romney’s wealthy donors, some of whom had memorable things to say about the state of the everyday American.
