Watch: Birther Arrested After Interrupting Reading of Constitution on House Floor


Congressmen have been busying themselves reading the Constitution aloud on the House floor today. With at least one interruption.

TPM reports:

An apparent member of the birther movement seated in the gallery of the House of Representatives on Thursday interrupted a reading of the Constitution. The woman yelled out "Except Obama, except Obama, help us Jesus!" as Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ) read the "natural born citizen" clause of the Constitution.

The woman screamed out from the House Gallery as Pallone read Section 1 of Article Two of the United States Constitution, which reads that "No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President."

As she was removed from the gallery by the Sergeant at Arms, she reportedly yelled out "My name is Theresa."
