There was a bizarre incident on the House floor during Wednesday's vote to reopen the government. A long-time stenographer had to be removed from the chamber after an outburst.
The video was shot by Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times after stenographer Dianne Reidy was led out of the chamber.
The cell phone video shows Reidy being escorted by security into an elevator. Watch the video here.
Reidy's rant included mentions of God, the Free Mason and the Constitution.
A Capitol Police spokesman said the stenographer was being interviewed but did not indicate whether they were bringing charges against her.
