A group of Ohio Highway Patrol troopers were called to the office of Senator Jim Carnes Wednesday, after an angry crowd of prosecutors stormed his office. It took the troopers nearly 20 minutes to clear the people out who were snapping pictures of Carnes’ staff and causing a commotion. It all began while Senator Carnes was on the Senate floor preparing to vote on a predatory lending bill. The gang of people who were aligned with a group called The East Side Organizing Project based in Cleveland, went into Carnes’ office and refused to leave. It took five patrolmen and a guard dog to usher the group out with the threat of arrest. Apparently the group was angered by the bill hearing and wanted to express their dissatisfaction with the senator.
