Occupy Wall Street crashes Ron Paul event

POLITICO's Ginger Gibson reports:
Members of the Occupy Wall Street crashed a town hall being hosted by Rep. Ron Paul at Keene State College in New Hampshire today.
At the conclusion of his speech, a group of protestors launched into their call and response that has become emblematic of the movement, with one member shouting a phrase and the larger group repeating it.
“There is something wrong with this system,” the protesters concluded. “We are the 99 percent.”
The group spoke for less than a minute, with a handful of Paul supporters beginning to shout back at the end.
Paul chuckled when they were done.
“Do you feel better?” he asked.
But then he got serious, pointing out that he agreed with some of their concerns.
“The people on Wall Street got the bailout and you guys got the bills and I think that’s where the problem is,” he said.
