Protesting Pritzker Over Ahmadinejad

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad attended a dinner at the Grand Hyatt yesterday, predictably drawing a large protest and some presidential politicking.

Among the protesters was outspoken Jewish activist and former Pataki aide Jeff Wiesenfeld, who was saying that Obama finance director Penny Pritzker “owns this hotel,” and insisting that she donate the money earned from hosting  Ahmadinejad to the United States Armed Services.

(Pritzker’s family does own Global Hyatt Corp., but several media outlets report that there’s no indication Pritzker knew anything about the dinner in advance, nor that she oversees daily operations at the hotel.
