If you thought the drama in Congress over the government shutdown couldn’t get any more bizarre, think again.
On Wednesday night, as the House of Representatives was voting on a last-minute deal to end the 16-day budget stalemate, a long-time House stenographer calmly stepped up to the rostrum and started shouting into a microphone.
The microphone she was yelling into was turned off, but lawmakers and staffers report she was ranting about Free Masons, the devil and the House being divided.
A House GOP aide told CNN the woman said, “Do not be deceived. God shall not be mocked. A House divided cannot stand.”
The woman, identified by ABC News and other sources as Dianne Reidy, was quickly pulled off the rostrum by House security officers.
As she was being led away, she was heard to shout, “This is not one nation under God. It never was.”
A number of staffers who said they knew the woman well told CNN’s Dana Bash the incident surprised and saddened them.
“She’s a well-known person, she’s a perfectly nice person, a good colleague, somebody who’s respectable and dependable, and this is very surprising to everybody who works with her,” Bash reported.
the lady I live with seemed normal until she went all Jesus freaky and nasty and hurtful on me. hypocrites! and then I went to go see a place and I called my current landlady a bitch and that did not go over well and the lady who was showing me the place-which was a dump anyways and I knew it wasn’t going to work out, told me to not call my current landlady a bitch when I am in someone else’s house because she doesn’t want that energy and I said, “good advice.” some times the universe hands you some knowledge but it comes in a hurtful package.
