Last night, former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates was awarded the Liberty Medal by the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. While you’d think there wouldn’t be much else to report, the ceremony had a small hiccup with Army Wives star Kim Delaney.
NBC Philadelphia posted the video last night of her speaking at the event where she appeared to have trouble reading the teleprompter. After about two minutes, audio is heard in the background and someone involved with running the ceremony appears to escort Delaney off stage.
I’m guessing more details will come out today, but nonetheless a strange event for an award that’s honored Nelson Mandela, Sandra Day O’Connor, Kofi Annan, Shimon Peres, and Colin Powell, according to its website.
