Wheelchair-Bound Woman, Shouted Down At Health Meeting, Speaks
Marianne Hoynes is the woman who was shouted down during a health care town hall in Red Bank, New Jersey conducted by Congressman Frank Pallone. Here she tells David Shuster and Alex Witt what that event was like for her. (via Crooks and Liars)
Hoynes: There was a large group of people who showed up that night for the purpose of making sure that questions couldn’t be asked, and we couldn’t hear information. I don’t know how to describe it any other way.
… You know, you could tell that they were very organized. They came in groups, they had signs ready, which — outside they were chanting, but as time went on, and certainly by the time we got into that room, which held about 500 people, they got more and more verbally violent — I don’t know how else to describe it.
