First Lady Michelle Obama faced a heckler at the Democratic National Convention in Washington last night. Ellen Sturtz of the LGBT rights group Get Equal began shouting at Michelle Obama in a planned protest, demanding for an executive order on gay rights. Mrs.Obama was upset by the interruption, and reportedly told the protester, "Listen to me or you can take the mic, but I’m leaving." Strutz was escorted out of the event.
