I want to know who yelled "NOOO!" so loud and so long, when President Obama asked for a bill to ban insider trading by members of Congress during his State of the Union address.

You can hear the loud yelling at approximately 1:15 in the following video, or jump right to the spot with this link.

What sort of Congressman would object so vehemently to a proposed law to cut off his source of income, an income that would be illegal if he were anything other than a Congressman? You know the answer: a crook!

This crook needs to be exposed. Someone knows who he is. Someone sat right next to him, and knows who he is. But that other Congressman won't say anything, because he's a crook too. There were hundreds of cameras pointing at every person in that room. Someone has video of this person yelling, screaming NOOOO with every fiber of his being, reverberating off the walls and down the halls of the Capitol. Let's find it. Let's make this Congressman face his constituents and tell them he wants to make money with insider trading on Wall Street.

Update: Wow, my first diary hits the recommended list. We have a possible identification of the Congressman who yelled, but it seems like secondhand speculation based on a liveblog. We really need confirmation and more direct evidence, like video or a photo, to make this into an issue. Someone in the media would have noticed this person erupting before Obama even finished his sentence, that type of reaction is what the media looks for. A conspicuous outburst like this can make this person a symbol of corruption in Congress, and a catalyst for change.

Thanks for reading my diary. This is my first diary ever even though I've been on dKos like forever, since the early days when there were so few people that you could still pick an account with your first name. I hope we can work together to get this question out to the public, find out who this crook is, and expose him.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
