Birther Lunatic Heckler Ejected From Congress
January 6, 2011
(ChattahBox Political News)—A certified birther lunatic interrupted the proceedings of the U.S. House of Representatives today, during the reading of the Constitution. When a lawmaker rose to recite the section requiring that the president be a “natural born Citizen,” a birther conspiracy wacko sitting in the gallery shouted out, “except Obama!” Good lord, welcome to the new tea party Congress.
The heckling erupted as Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ) rose to read Section 1 of Article Two of the United States Constitution.
Soon after he starting reading, the birther shouted, “Except Obama, except Obama, help us Jesus!”
The birther woman was removed from the chamber and put under arrest for disturbing the proceedings.
Talking Points Memo has more:
“The Sergeant at Arms was called in, as they are in charge of removing those creating a disturbance on the House floor. An officer told the woman she was under arrest and removed her from the gallery as she yelled out “My name is Theresa,” Politico reported.
“Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson (R) banged the gavel to bring the House back to order.”
