Black Burka Clad Woman Wearing U.S. Military Insignia Booted From Obama Event
Based on Pool, AP and Twitter reports | Saturday, May 5, 2012 | Kristinn

A strange happening at the Obama campaign event at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond today. The media pool reports mentioned a woman wearing a black burka who was removed from the event. To make things more interesting, the pool reporter says the person was wearing U.S. military insignia.

From the AP:

VCU police reported that a heckler was removed from the arena, taken outside and released. A police dispatcher didn't know what the woman had yelled.

According to a White House pool report, photographers observed a woman wearing a black burka being escorted out of the gym by Richmond police and other security officials. The woman appeared to be wearing U.S. military pins and was carrying book. She cooperated with police, according to the report.

From Twitter:

Amie Parnes, White House reporter for The Hill:

As I wrote in my pool reports, a woman wearing a black burka was escorted out of the Richmond rally by police during Obama's speech.

7:26 PM - 5 May 12 via Mobile Web

Soon after that Tweet, Parnes retweeted a Tweet by West Wing Report about her pool report:

Pool reporter @AmieParnes studied pool photos of the woman. She "appears to be wearing U.S. military insignia" and "had a book in her hand"

Retweeted by Amie Parnes 7:12 PM - 5 May 12 via web

Nothing more about this so far. I haven't found the photos of the incident.

Whenever anything like this occurs around the MARXIST in chief I immediately think plant.
Somehow the press will make him look good.

so they let a person in the arena where the president was speaking with her entire body covered in heavy black outfit and just a slit for her eyes?

Or was she just wearing a head scarf?

What happened to Obama’s new law where they can lock you up when the Secret Service is present at a rally?

Oh!! I forgot this is a Muslim they just turned her loose.

Wasn’t she supposed to be sitting behind Obama during his pep rally to show that his campaign values diversity?

I believe that woman was discriminated against and should sue the campaign.

Aren’t there lawyers who love cases like this?

Did the police have the good sense to escort her out of our country as well?

PING!
