An expensive heckle

While President Obama was giving his healthcare speech last night, one Republican Congressman, Joe Wilson of South Carolina, took it upon himself to heckle, shouting out, "You Lie".

Wilson's opponent is a Democrat called Rob Miller. And since Wilson's heckle was broadcast across the nation, people have been donating to Miller's campaign.

At the time of writing, less than 24 hours after the speech, 11,085 people have donated a total of $399,502 to Miller's campaign. Miller has been receiving nearly $1,000 per minute.

Now that is one expensive heckle.
