House floor stenographer charges dais, shouting

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A House of Representatives floor stenographer was abruptly hauled out of the chamber after charging the dais shouting during Wednesday's late night vote on raising the debt ceiling, and funding the federal government. As the bill sailed toward final passage, the presiding lawmaker suddenly began pounding the gavel. Witnesses on the floor said the woman, who was not identified, seized a microphone and began yelling during the vote. She was then removed from the chamber by floor staff and taken into an adjacent elevator. She continued yelling as she was taken away, saying phrases such as "you cannot serve two masters" and "he will not be mocked."
