Chanting protesters interrupt Senate following Keystone vote

Seconds after Sen. Elizabeth Warren announced that the “aye” votes approving Keystone XL project fell just short of the 60 vote threshold, a Native American chant broke out in the gallery, celebrating the Senate’s rejection of the controversial crude oil pipeline.

 The man who began the chant reportedly came from the Lakota tribe: Tribal spokesman says man who started chanting is Greg Graycloud with the Lakota Tribe in South Dakota.

After he completed his singing, much to the chagrin of Warren (who called for the sergeant-at-arms to remove all hecklers), a group of protestors began chanting about the Senate Democrats who voted in favor of the pipeline.

All of the people who interrupted the proceedings were eventually escorted out

The Democrat-controlled Senate failed to gather the 60 votes it needed to approve the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. The Senate's 59-41 vote Tuesday night was a nail-biter to the end.
