Ruckus for rights: Another day, another GetEQUAL protest

by Jeremy Hooper

Protesters with GetEQUAL, the group behind yesterday's White House protest over Don't Ask Don't Tell, just disrupted a House Education and Labor Committee hearing to press for immediate markup of the Employment NonDiscrimination Act:

Apparently they attempted to deliver markers as a symbolic gesture.

Robin McGehee, Natasha Dillon, Sergio Llanos, Alan Bounville, Mark Reed, Kelsey Phipps, and Ali Lozano are the names of those involved today. Wallflowers they are not.
