Code Pink forces cancellation of GOP fundraiser

On the 1st of October, as the Federal government shut down most public services, Congressman Steve Chabot had planned a fundraising dinner. When he got word that Code Pink was going to show up dressed as billionaires with a “wealthcare” theme, he cancelled the entire event!

Before zooming in enough to read this, I asked two women who went through that door if they were looking for the Code Pink event. Got a very stuffy "no"

Here is Code Pink’s notice of cancellation of both the fundraiser and the now-redundant protest:

Great news! Yesterday we put out the call for “Billionaires for Wealthcare” to “attend” a lavish fundraiser hosted by Congressman Steve Chabot to expose the callousness of raising campaign contributions on the very day of the government shutdown. Within an hour after alerting the press of this event, Congressman Chabot actually cancelled the fundraiser!!
