From News & Observer Reports ~ Sixty to seventy protestors gathered outside Bartlesville's Community Center Monday night to demand the 2011 Republican Legislature give prominent consideration to issues they deem important.
With Charlie Meadows of the ultra-conservative Oklahoma Conservative Political Action Committee dressed in a Santa suit leading the protest, those in the group displayed signs generally derogatory of House Speaker-elect Kris Steele and describing the legislators at "RINOS," or "Republicans In Name Only."
