You’ve certainly seen enough video footage of the unruly union mobs in Madison, WI for the last two months. Well, the SEIU has taken its mob show on the road and, like the pioneers of old, headed West.
Demonstrators were forced out of a legislative gallery and stopped by state troopers outside Democratic Gov. Chris Gregoire’s office, said Robert Calkins, spokesman for the Washington State Patrol.
About 400 protesters were in the building, loud but orderly, Calkins told CNN. Some tried to rush to Gregoire’s office.
“There were a group that planned to be arrested and they were accommodated,” Calkins said. “We’re happy to have people come down and express their opinion, but we want it to be safe for everyone involved.”

Below are two clips of the confrontation in Olympia.
