10 Occupy Protesters Arrested in Iowa

Ten Occupy Des Moines protesters were arrested Wednesday during demonstrations at Mitt Romney’s Iowa office and a Wells Fargo branch. The protesters demanded that Romney and Wells Fargo release their tax returns, and that Romney return campaign donations from Wells Fargo PACs or Wells Fargo itself. In a press release, Occupy Des Moines said Romney has received $61,000 in campaign donations from Wells Fargo and its employees. The protesters assembled around 2 p.m. and finding Romney’s office to be locked, started banging on windows and demanding to be let in—which led to some being arrested. Other protesters tried to build a funnel from the Wells Fargo office to Romney, while some played musical instruments.
