There were multiple reports (and NSFW pictures) today of naked protesters storming the office of House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, over $1.2 billion in cuts to the federal budget that would go into effect under sequestration.

There were reportedly seven protesters, three female and four male. Chris Geidner of BuzzFeed reports that the three female protesters were arrested and charged with indecent exposure.

Sahil Kapur from Talking Points Memo tweeted that one chant from the protesters was, "Boehner, Boehner, don't be a dick, budget cuts will make us sick."
