When the Ryan Seven showed up at Rep. Paul Ryan's offices for a fifth day of requesting a meeting they were greeted with locked doors and security provided by the City of Kenosha Police Department. Scott Page, one of the constituents seeking an audience with his representative said they were told they aren't allowed to park in the parking lot or enter the building unless they have an appointment with the Congressman. Page said they've tried to call the offices from outside to set up an appointment, but the phones aren't being answered.
A call by dane101 to the posted Ryan office number, (262) 654-1901, at 10:30 a.m. resulted in no answer.
Page said they still haven't received any personal contact from Ryan about his groups job creation issues.
Video from the lock-out is below.
