Protesters Shower Dollar Bills on Senate
 

Dollar bills rained onto the Senate floor Wednesday as protesters called on senators to reject a bill relating to labeling products with genetically modified organisms, or GMOs.

Alexis Baden-Mayer, political director of the Organic Consumers Association, and Adam Eidinger, a local activist and founder of "Occupy Monsanto," dropped more than $2,000 worth of dollar bills onto the floor around 4 p.m. to raise attention about large corporations' influence on the legislation.
