Naked AIDS Protesters Invade Boehner’s Office, Tell Him Not to be a ‘Dick’

Talking Points Memo’s Sahil Kapur tweeted this Instagram photo. (Sorry, we blurred out the buttocks and genitalia.)

Seven completely naked protesters piled into House Speaker John Boehner’s D.C. office today chanting rhyming slogans to decry Fiscal Cliff budget cuts that would impact AIDS funding:

Boehner, Boehner, don’t be a dick, budget cuts will make us sick.
Budget cuts are really rude, that’s why we have to be so lewd.

Cops showed up and made everyone get dressed. They arrested the three female protesters, who lingered too long for their liking.

Talking Points Memo lists the groups behind the spectacle:

The protest was organized by AIDS activist organizations Health Global Access Group (GAP), Queerocracy, Act Up NY and Act Up Philadelphia. They say that if sequestration — automatic spending cuts set to take effect in January — goes into effect, funding to combat HIV/AIDS could drop substantially and cost lives.
