More than a dozen activists who bought tickets to a Philadelphia event featuring Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney say they were denied entrance without explanation.
 
The activists protested Monday on the steps of the Franklin Institute in central Philadelphia as Romney spoke inside at an event organized by the Independence Hall Tea Party.
 
The protesters said that when they tried to go inside, they were refused entry. Event organizers eventually granted them refunds for their $20 tickets after they chanted loudly on the steps.

The activists, who were from groups such as Occupy Philly and Fight For Philly, said they just wanted to ask Romney questions about his policies.
