On Wednesday, April 11, 2012, outside of the gates of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, approximately 250 union activists from Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Lawton protested Wisconsin Governor Walker's 1,500 a plate dinner/fundraising event. Premium tables were rumoured to cost $25,000 for 8 atendees, or $3,125 for each person.

Many of the atendees were shocked that there were so many people there waiving signs of protest. However, there were many people that honked their horn as they drove by.

As of midnight local time there seems to not be any notice of it on local news sites and newspapers.  

The Potemkin Village is still safe.

This was sponsored by the right-win Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs.
This wal called the Citizenship Dinner.  
Governor Walker is rumored to have received $ 50,000 to be the keynote speaker at this event.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
