To protest an American right

[VIDEO] On Wednesday a group of protesters disrupted a session of the Illinois House of Representatives by dropping fake paper money on legislators. They were part of a group refered to as Represent.Us and the video you see above is from their YouTube channel.

Rich Miller wrote: "Notice that nobody started grabbing at the fake money."

This display was a protest against "loopholes" in Illinois' anti-corruption laws. And taking Millers quote into context it's funny that Illinois politicians are seen as corrupt - well especially Chicago politicians - but most of the members who were closest to the money drop knew it would've been bad PR to touch that. Even if the money was fake.

Well, assuming anyone asked for my take on it. :P
