From KXAN.com: Sheehan, supporters protest at Karl Rove event

AUSTIN Cindy Sheehan and more than 50 other anti-war protesters ambushed a pre-dinner reception today for President Bush’s top adviser Karl Rove. They chanted “Try Rove for treason.”

Rove came to the Austin hotel to speak at an Associated Republicans of Texas fundraising dinner.

Sheehan and the demonstrators rushed toward closed doors, chanting loudly after the guests went into the dinner. One woman was arrested during a scuffle with police.

Rove was not in the Renaissance Hotel lobby during the reception.

Sheehan told officers guarding the doors that she wanted Rove arrested for planning the war that killed her son, Casey. He was killed in Iraq in 2004.

Police ordered the group to leave. Some had paid for rooms for the night and a group including Sheehan went upstairs.

Reception guests sipped their drinks and largely ignored the protesters before the chanting. One man said, “Go Bush!”

Sheehan and the group have been holding vigil in Crawford near Bush’s ranch for the last two weeks.
