Protesters To Build "tent City" Outside McCain Condo

John McCain has taken plenty of heat for not being sure how many houses he owns.

Now liberal activists are going to target one of those homes _ his Crystal City, Va. luxury condo _ with a protest tomorrow in which they plan to build a "tent city" outside the condo building.

The protest is being organized by "Change to Win," a coalition of some of the nation's largest unions, and the plan is for laid off workers to build a faux tent city outside of McCain's condo building to protest his opposition to more generious housing relief laws.

From a statement the group put out this morning: "Nearly 100 workers will join together tomorrow to call on Senator John McCain to change his position on housing relief and open his home to families facing foreclosure at a protest outside his luxury condo in Crystal City, VA. The protest will culminate with the construction of a tent city across the street from McCain’s condo. Workers from Ohio, Michigan, and Virginia will be on hand to tell their personal foreclosure, layoff, and medical bankruptcy stories."
