LGBT activists push Employment Non-Discrimination Act
President Obama is facing heat from LGBT activists, who are unhappy that he has yet to sign an executive order banning federal contractors from discriminating against LGBT employees. On Thursday, eight LGBT protesters were arrested after staging a sit-in outside the office of House Speaker John Boehner, who has expressed no interest in advancing the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. Heather Cronk, co-director of GetEqual--the group assoicated with the infamous Michelle Obama heckler, and now, the sit-in--joins Thomas Roberts.
