Obama signs Ledbetter Act!

Obama signs Ledbetter Act (AP photo by Ron Edmonds)Obama’s first bill signing is the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act! And I think Ledbetter herself was wearing an Elvis pin at the ceremony, which is badass. I just watched it live on CNN.com, so no links yet, but I will update when they come in.

Update: HuffPo has both the video and the transcript, so I guess I’ll just link you there. On closer inspection (or, more accurately, at higher resolution), it appears that Ledbetter’s pin isn’t Elvis striking a pose, but a woman in white walking. Easy mistake to make in streaming video.
