NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Security had to escort four Occupy Nashville protesters out of former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's fundraiser at the Downtown Hilton on Thursday night.
The four protesters were given tickets and snuck into the $125 per plate fundraiser.
Video sent to us by an attendee, Gretch Steubbel, showed Rumsfeld speaking. Moments after he got on stage, a woman stood up and called him a war criminal. In the photos, she was escorted out of the ballroom at the downtown Hilton.
Three other people from Occupy Nashville got up to speak. After they were kicked out, they uploaded a video to YouTube.
"When I came our time, I got up, I pointed at him, and I said ‘Donald Rumsfeld, you are a war criminal, and you lied to the world'," the woman said.
