The Washington Post and Free Republic Report:

One of Barack Obama's elite fundraisers from the anti-American group Code
attempted to storm the stage last night during Republican vice presidential
nominee Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's acceptance speech at the GOP convention in
St. Paul.

Jodie Evans, one of a group of about 500 top financiers who have bundled tens of thousands of dollars for the Obama campaign was seized by the Secret Service after she had made her way to side of the stage and and started to yell at Palin.

10:45 p.m. A pair of Code Pink activists just got to the very edge of the
stage and were a moment away from apparently running on stage, right by the
Kentucky slot on the floor next to a host of McCain's most senior staffers.

Evans has bundled between $50,000 and $100,000 for Obama as well as
contributing the maximum $2300 to Obama's presidential primary campaign
She co-hosted Obama's breakout Hollywood fundraiser at the start of his campaign in February 2007.

As a bundler, Evans has been given perks that include regular briefings by
top campaign staffers on policy and private meetings with Obama and his vice
presidential candidate Joe Biden.
