Reporter Dragged Kicking and Screaming From Near Air Force One (great photo... lol)
NBC/LA News ^ | 5/28/09 | Christina Hoag

Posted on 05/28/2009 12:37:44 PM PDT by xtinct

A reporter for a small newspaper was forcibly removed from a press area near Air Force One shortly before President Barack Obama arrived at Los Angeles International Airport to depart California early Thursday.

Airport security officers carried the woman away by the feet and arms as she protested her removal.

She later identified herself as Brenda Lee, a writer for the Georgia Informer in Macon and said she has White House press credentials. The newspaper's Web site says it is monthly publication a Brenda Lee column is posted on it.

Calls to the newspaper and the White House press office were not immediately returned.

Lee said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press that she wanted to hand Obama a letter urging him "to take a stand for traditional marriage."

She said she asked a Secret Service agent to give the president her letter, but he refused and referred her to a White House staffer. Lee said she refused to give the staffer the letter.

"I said, 'I'll take my chances if (the president) comes by here,'" said Lee, who identified herself as a Roman Catholic priestess who lives in Anaheim, Calif. "He became annoyed that I wouldn't give him the letter."

Lee, who was wearing what she described as a cassock, said she protested when she was asked to leave.

"I said, 'Why are you bothering me?' They escorted me outside the gate," she said

Given that the majority of the MSM react to Obama as if they were teenaged girls at a Jonas Brothers concert I’m surprised we don’t see more scenes like that.

Perhaps...

>>to take a stand for traditional marriage

One nice way to discredit this POV.

If it gets highlighted tonight on TV, then a certainty that proves FDR’s axiom, nothing in politics happens by accident unless it’s planned that way.

I guess Obama don’t wanna hear nothin’ ‘bout no “Traditional Marriage”, not even from a black woman.

Let me get this straight? A “Roman Catholic Priestess” with a newspaper column tries to get Obama to “take a stand for traditional marriage?”

A “priestess?” How about taking a stand for traditional Catholic teaching and not claiming to be some sort of priestess.

Does AF1 even have any white staff or security staff anymore? I never seen any in the photos. Plus half of Obama’s security staff look like Fruit of Islam and not like Secret Service. Weird.

Actually, she is vocally pro-life, has openly spoken out and written against gay marriage, and protested the Vatican’s lack of spine on Obama’s visit to Notre Dame in her column. She was probably “hand-delivering” a letter rebuking obama for his stance on abortion to provoke just the response she got.

I suspect this woman is one of a kind. Probably the only Roman Catholic Priestess in the country who stands for traditional marriage.

"Maybe Sheila Jackson Lee’s crazy sister.

If "crazy" was a disqualifier to be a White House reporter, the daily WH briefings would be given to an empty room.

Also, are you presuming that Sheila Jackson Lee has a sane sister? I wouldn't bet the farm on that one. :)

I got invited to see President Bush off at Boeing Field. We were told not to take any photos of Air force One prior to going through the Secret Service inspection line. Any photos taken before, even while you were still on the bus outside the terminal had to be deleted in front of them, and if you used film it was taken away. They were serious.
Once inside, and standing in a designated area for us, we were aloud to take all the photos we wanted.

My guess is this woman was not heading the rules in one way or another.
