A respected and well-known House stenographer snapped after the last-minute deal to end the government shutdown passed on Washington.
CNN reports that the stenographer went up to the podium, grabbed the microphone and began screaming before being escorted out by the Sergeant-At-Arms. She said that “God shall not be mocked. A House divided cannot stand,” according to a GOP representative. The rest of her speech was caught on tape by Todd Zwilich of Public Radio International.
The stenographer went on talking about God and how this is not and has never been one nation under God. “Had it been… it would not have been,” she continued. “No. it would not have been… the Constitution would not have been written by Free Masons… and go against God. You cannot serve two masters. You cannot serve two masters. Praise be to God, Lord Jesus Christ.”
The stenographer’s colleagues were surprised by the rant as she is a well-known and respected worker. Officers have interviewed the woman and she was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
