NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Two Tennessee lawmakers pushing a bathroom bill and legislation declaring marriage between a man and a woman have quickly fled their news conference when protesters interrupted it.
Republican Rep. Mark Pody had spoken less than two minutes Wednesday before a protester interrupted, saying, "My marriage is just as good as yours."
A gay couple held hands in the air. A woman's shirt read, "You can pee next to me."
Pody asked if they'd like him to go on. Protesters chanted, "Pull the bill."
