Pelosi interrupted by hecklers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. A normally-staid political discussion during Politico's Democratic National Convention breakfast series was twice interrupted this morning by protesters during House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's appearance.

The first protester, a woman, shouted out a question on Middle East issues. A few minutes later, as Pelosi was leaving the stage at Packard Place on Church Street, several anti-war protesters unfurled a pink banner and began shouting before they were escorted out. By the time they got to the nearby elevators, the protesters were laughing. Adam Bell
