GetEqual disrupts House committee mtg over ENDA

From the Dallas Voice via Andy Towle:

“The activists approached Chairman George Mitchell, D-California, and attempted to hand him a marker. Mitchell refused to take the marker but told the activist that the committee plans to take action on ENDA soon. ‘We’re working on it as expeditiously as we can,’ Miller said. The audio on a live stream of the committee hearing then cut out for a few minutes. When it returned, Mitchell explained to the audience that the interruption was related to ENDA. ‘It’s not an easy piece. of legislation,’ Miller said. ‘It’s a really complicated piece of legislation. We want to get it right, but we expect to have it before this committee in the very near future.'”
