Protest organizers disavow Special Olympics demonstration - JSOnline.mobi
Matt Guidry, a spokesman for the United Council of University of Wisconsin Students, which organized the Vos protest, said his group did not back the demonstration during the noon-hour Special Olympics ceremony attended by Walker, though some of the same zombie demonstrators were involved.
"That was not associated with anything that United Council was doing," Guidry said. "That doesn't make us look that good."
Guidry said the intent of the "die-in" in Vos' office was to raise awareness about legislation requiring voters to show photo IDs at the polls and separate issues in the state budget such as a decision by Republicans to turn down federal money for increasing Internet broadband access.
