EXCLUSIVE: Woman silenced at birth control hearing with House committee on 'Ed Show' yesterday

Chairman Darryl Issa turned away a woman who was set to testify at yesterday's House committee hearing. There were no women testifying in the first panel. This will haunt Issa as well as the GOP on the committee as they continue to play political football. Here name is Sandra Fluke. Who is Sandra Fluke?

She is past president of the school's Students for Reproductive Justice group. She has lobbied the administration at Georgetown (a private, Jesuit, research university) for three years to include birth control in its student health plans. Here is what she wanted to say to the House committee and here is her interview on the 'Ed Show.'
