A black woman writer fromGeorgia newspaper who wanted to give President Barack Obama a letter opposing gay marriage was forcibly removed from a press area near Air Force One on Thursday shortly before he arrived at the airport.
She identified herself as Brenda Lee, a writer for the Georgia Informer in Macon, and said she is a “Roman Catholic priestess” who lives in Anaheim, Calif. She said she has White House press credentials.
Since when does having “White House press credentials” entitle a ‘reporter’ to hand deliver letters to a head of state?
