WATCH: Woman arrested for speaking out at Mitch McConnell’s swanky closed-door luncheon
At least one protester was reportedly arrested on Thursday for interrupting Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) while he was speaking at a closed-door Chamber of Commerce luncheon in Covington, Kentucky.
In video posted on Twitter, the woman can be heard calmly saying, “We want to talk to you. Please come face-to-face with your constituents and stop pay-to-play.”
