Watch Natacha Seijas Storm Out Of Her Video Deposition In Recall Lawsuit

When lawyers for Miami Voice -- the group that organized a successful recall effort against County Commissioner Natacha Seijas -- got her to sit down for a video deposition yesterday, they asked Herald reporter Matthew Haggman to come and watch. It's not that unusual a move. Depositions aren't open by law, but the press is free to sit in if invited.

Seijas and her attorney, Stephen Cody, were not exactly thrilled with the arrangement. In fact, when Haggman refused to leave, the pair pulled off their microphones and stormed out. Click through for the video!

The clip is courtesy Geniusofdespair over at Eye on Miami, who rightly points out that Seijas has some NASA-worthy lasers projecting from her eyeballs throughout her brief appearance on camera.

You may want to don a welders mask or build one of those eclipse-watching boxes before playing the film to protect your corneas.
