DNC Officials Furious Over Two Incidents That Occurred While Maxine Waters Was Speaking

On Saturday the 14 term US Rep. Maxine Waters was giving a speech at a convention center in LA. The conference was for the African American Caucus of California Democrats, and during her, a speech a person some think worked for the convention center attempted to approach her. The LA Times reports:

“This is a very unusual situation, and we are collectively trying to figure out a path forward to address what happened and make sure these things do not happen in the future,” Caucus Chairman Darren Parker said.

Waters, a Los Angeles Democrat whose acerbic comments on President Trump have brought her national attention in her 14th term, was in the middle of a rousing speech against Trump on Saturday night when she was approached by a man who appeared to work for the convention center.
“Hey, leave her alone,” audience members shouted as he interrupted to speak to her privately, prompting Parker to show the man away.
“That’s all right, that’s OK — they try to shut me up all the time,” Waters quipped to loud cheers as she continued to speak.

But the sound from her microphone was cut off shortly thereafter, sending the room of about 300 people into confusion. That didn’t stop Waters. As a few voices shouted in anger, she got down from the podium, telling the audience they could still have a conversation.
She finished her speech from the floor, as the crowd chanted “Impeach 45.”

A manager for the Sacramento Convention Center told The Times on Monday that the contractors who pulled the plug on the event were not center employees.
