ST. LOUIS (AP) — Protesters briefly interrupted an appearance by Gov. Jay Nixon in St. Louis.

Nixon was taking questions Friday at an event hosted by the St. Louis Business Journal at St. Louis University when about 20 protesters walked into the auditorium chanting. The protesters were from the group Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch said they were protesting foreclosures and bank bailouts.

An officer from the Missouri State Highway Patrol escorted the protesters out without incident after about a minute inside the auditorium.

    Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment another group for social and economic justice, gender and LGBT equality. The left is so dumb. Hey guys, Nixon is one of yours.

    1. Brad Weir says:

      yeah, ‘social and economical justice is dumb’.

      King, do you realize all of your rights came from people on the left?
