Stevens, under multiple criminal investigations for corruption, kept his head low and walked briskly into the Kodiak Inn Hotel after arriving about 10 minutes late.

The protesters shouted "Racketeer go home!" "Give it back" and "FBI" among others.

Casey Kelly at Kodiak's local radio station KMXT interviewed some of the protesters. (Listen Here).

The mayor of Kodiak Carolyn Floyd, Al Burch, Julie Bonney, were among 45 people that attended the lunchtime gathering.
