Stenographer Who Gave Freemasons Spiel Getting Mental Evaluation

The woman was hauled out of the chamber during Wednesday's late night vote on raising the debt ceiling and funding the federal government.

As the bill sailed toward final passage, the woman seized a microphone and began shouting in front of the presiding lawmaker, according to a C-SPAN video.
