A source at the bar told the Willamette Week newspaper: “She walked out in the middle of the street, threw off her shoes and purse and screamed Obama, Obama!”
Beth Ditto, 32, has been accused by a fellow reveler of being “blackout” drunk and trying to start fights in the bar, after initially being refused entry for being so intoxicated.
