Wisconsin protester fined for spitting at Romney event
A Wisconsin protester who spit on a Mitt Romney supporter last year during an event in Grand Chute will be fined but not criminally charged.
The August event was on behalf of the Republican presidential candidate, who was not in attendance. It was part of a statewide "Wisconsin Women for Mitt" tour.
Video from the event shows the 83-year-old protester interrupting Republican state Sen. Alberta Darling to ask about GOP opposition to Planned Parenthood.
A woman standing next to the protester chides her in a loud voice to "wait until she's done. Zip it. Zip it." The protester tells the woman to get out of her face, and then spits on her.
A WLUK-TV report says a Green Lake County prosecutor recommended a $277 fine but no charges.
