AIDS Activists Interrupt Paul Ryan Values Voter Summit Speech

Two women were thrown out of a conservative gathering after yelling “corporations aren’t people” during a Washington, DC, speech by Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, Talking Points Memo reports. The women said they paid for their tickets to the Values Voter Summit, sponsored by the Family Research Council, which in 2010 was classified as an anti-LGBT hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. "Our politicians need to stand up for people with HIV," said one of the women, who identified herself as a member of ACT UP Philadelphia.
