Earlier this week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was resisting calls from her fellow Democrats to censure Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., for interrupting President Obama's speech Wednesday night. Now, after some lobbying from her colleagues, she's reportedly changed her mind.
The Hill reports that a House Democrat -- probably Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md. -- "will introduce a 'resolution of disapproval' Monday or Tuesday unless Wilson formally apologizes on the House floor."
Wilson has, of course, already apologized to Obama himself, and the president said he accepts the congressman's apology. But that was prompted by Republican leadership, and Wilson's actions were a violation of the normal House rules of decorum, so Democrats want an apology from the floor as well. A spokesman for the congressman has said he won't be doing that.
