Black Lives Matter protester crashes Pete Buttigieg event in Indiana

The supporters for Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, had rallied in his city on Wednesday night when they were interrupted by a protester in a "Black Lives Matter" shirt.

The fracas was caught on camera by local network WSBT 22, showing the protester charging toward the front of the room where South Bend Councilwoman Sharon McBride was speaking.

Senator Elizabeth Warren called on her Democratic rival Pete Buttigieg to disclose the names of his consulting clients while working at McKinsey & Co. and "open the doors" of his fundraisers to the press. He then takes the microphone and yells repeatedly, "This is a farce!" Democratic presidential hopefuls are converging on SC this weekend for a host of events where the candidates can directly address an important voting bloc in the Democratic primary.

Democratic presidential candidate South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg speaks as Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakar said, "The Sanders campaign does not support the disruption of any candidates' events, and we condemn anyone who does so". We have a police crisis in this town.

Out titled the report, "Pete Buttigieg Volunteered for Homophobic Salvation Army".


The Salvation Army has faced long-running criticism for its approach to LGBTQ rights, with a commissioner of the Christian aid organization signing a 2012 letter that opposed same-sex marriage.

However, the Salvation Army has pushed back at its critics' portrayal of the group as discriminatory.

"I had studied economics academically. and I had worked a little bit around campaigns, but I hadn't done the work of being involved in how people and money and goods move around the world", Buttigieg told CNN.

The endorsement from a high-profile African-American official comes at a pivotal time for Buttigieg, who's struggled to attract black voters, even as he's surged to the top of some polls in the early-voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire.
