Michelle Obama loses her cool: First Lady threatens to leave fundraiser after lesbian protester heckles her - and the White House deletes exchange from official transcript
First lady loses her cool and said: 'Listen to me or you can take the mic, but I'm leaving. You all decide'
Protester was angry about President's failure to order federal contractors to stop discriminating against gays and lesbians in hiring
The official pool reporter caught the fracas, but the White House later released a transcript that omitted the entire exchange
'I simply couldn't stay silent any longer,' the heckler said later
The president supports an 'Employment Non-Discrimination Act,' but promised when campaigning in 2008 to sign an executive order instead
