An anti-war protestor gave U.S. Senator Herb Kohl a hard time during a stop on the UW-Madison campus.

Kohl had just begun his remarks at a forum on reforming credit card companies, when a protestor rushed the podium and grabbed the microphone. The man, identified as Miles Kristan, verbally attacked Kohl for supporting the war in Iraq. The man was escorted out of the room by organizers of the event and security was called in to guard the rest of the event.

While Kohl did not react to the accusations, he did comment on the outburst. Kohl said our country is all about being able to express ourselves in ways such as this, and that's what makes America a great country.
