WASHINGTON, June 14 (UPI) — Eight workers associated with an LGBT activist group were arrested during a protest outside House Speaker John Boehner's office in Washington.

The activists taken into custody Thursday are affiliated with GetEQUAL, the same lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender organization that disrupted first lady Michelle Obama's speech during a Democratic National Committee event last week. They were seeking President Obama's signature on an Executive Order that would bar any company that contracts with the federal government from discrimination based sexual orientation or gender identity.
