Wisconsin Congressman Dave Obey could not enter the Wisconsin Capitol despite the claim by the Department of Administration that the building is open.
The Capitol has been a scene of on-going protests in response to legislation proposed by Governor Walker.
Following the lockdown of the building, the Circuit Court issued an injunction to reopen the building to the public.
Rep. Obey served Wisconsin in Congress from 1969 – 2011 and in the State Assembly from 1963 – 1969.
He was met at the doors by Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) and Assistant Minorirty Leader Donna Seidel (D-Wausau).
