Barely Into the Hearings, Onlookers Disrupt Opening Remarks
Some people just can't keep their mouths shut. Less than two hours into Sonia Sotomayor's confirmation hearing, an onlooker can be heard shouting during Sen. Dianne Feinstein's opening remarks. The event was so disruptive that it resulted in Sen. Leahy calling for the police to remove the man, not before he can be heard slamming his gavel and issuing a stern warning for any others looking to mimick the disruption.
While it is difficult to make out, it seems the person yelled "Her record--What about the unborn. Abortion is murder! Stop the genocide of unborn Latinos", which came as Sen. Feinstein praised Sotomayor's judicial record.
Here's the video:
And, as I write this post, yet another person was removed from the hearings for yelling during Sen. Dick Durbin's opening remarks. Maybe this is the "new" Republican filibuster?
