Video Shows Activists Crashing Romney Koch Fundraiser in Hamptons

"When you're on Koch, you do a lot of crazy things..."

This amusing, pun-filled video from MoveOn.org recounts a creative, raucous weekend of protests out in the Hamptons in honor of the Koch brothers' Mitt Romney fundraiser in a mansion-dotted community by the sea.

The coalition of protesters included Moveon.org as well as several Long Island Occupy groups and other progressive activists, all visible in the video.

Mitt Romney was egged by the protests to declare his allegiance to the Koches: "Romney quipped to the crowd at Koch’s event, “I understand there is a plane out there saying Mitt Romney has ‘a Koch problem.’ I don’t look at it as a problem; I look at it as an asset.”
