Man disrupts Senate over abortion, thanks McCain

Senator John McCain (R) Born Aug. 29, 1936; Senator since 1987; member US House 1983-86; former naval aviator. Last full year of current term: 2016.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Capitol Police have removed a man from the Senate gallery after he disrupted proceedings by shouting that abortion is sin, and thanking Sen. John McCain.

At the time of the incident Tuesday, the Arizona Republican was on the Senate floor complaining about leaks of classified information. It was not immediately clear why the man was thanking McCain, but the senator paused and said, quote: “I guess I’ll take a compliment where I can get it.”

Capitol Police Lt. Kimberly Schneider identified the shouter as Rives Grogan. Schneider said Grogan was being held and that police charged him with disruption of Congress.
