Reading of the Constitution Interrupted at Article II, Section 1

During the reading of Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution, a heckler interrupted the proceeding when the representative reached this paragraph:
No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
The female visitor to the chamber shouted that Obama wasn't eligible.  She was removed from the chamber for her illegal outburst.

[Update:  Fox News vaguely mentioned the incident, but neglected to repeat the timing of the incident or the comment made by the woman.]
