House Stenographer Explains Her Bizarre Outburst in an E-mail to Fox Producer

Dianne Reidy, the stenographer who went on a strange rant on the House floor Wednesday night, has now made a public comment, in an e-mail sent to Fox News producer Chad Pergram to explain why she was screaming about God while House members were on the floor.

Greta Van Susteren posted the e-mail on her Gretawire blog, and this is what Reidy had to say about her unexpected outburst.

“For the past 2 and 1/2 weeks, the Holy Spirit has been waking me up in the
middle of the night and preparing me (through my reluctance and doubt) to deliver
a message in the House Chamber.
That is what I did last night”

Pergram told Megyn Kelly last night that Reidy had been escorted out of the building and taken to a nearby hospital for a mental health evaluation.
