Occupy members finagle their way inside Senator's office

SALISBURY TWP., Pa. - Members of the Occupy movement made their way inside Senator Pat Toomey's Salisbury Township office Thursday.

Protesters were eventually escorted out of the office by police.

Members of the Occupy movement want to speak directly to the senator about his opposition to President Obama's jobs bill.

The group has waited outside the building all week but managed to get inside Thursday afternoon.

"They called the police on us and we demanded that we would talk to him," said protestor Jessica Walls-Lavelle. "They said no and we left peacefully."

The senator hasn't spoken to the Occupy members yet.

The protesters say they'll be back Friday.
