Can't find your credentials?

They just might have fallen into the hands of protesters. MPR reporter Laura Yuen sends in this tidbit:
During the convention Wednesday night, two protesters believed to be with the anti-war group Code Pink were escorted out of the Xcel Energy Center after heckling the speakers.
St. Paul Police Chief John Harrington said they had the proper credentials to get onto the convention floor. "They were dressed pretty much like all the rest of the convention-goers there," he said.
But after getting inside the center, Harrington said they changed out of their black dresses and into their outfits, "which I believe were pink." He said officers escorted the protesters off the grounds but did not make any arrests. He did not know how the hecklers obtained the RNC credentials, which he said were apparently legitimate.
