    They must have asked to be arrested. During a session of Congress, members of either house can only be arrested for treason or other felony, or breech of the peace. The last was not the charge levied against them.

    Idiots.

    From the link: Reps. John Lewis, Charlie Rangel, Jan Schakowsky, Luis Gutierrez, Al Green and Joseph Crowley locked arms with other protesters, allegedly blocking traffic and refusing to disperse.

    Lets see - Rangel - need we say more?

    Lets see, we could deploy extra LEO and other govt workers for this event, but we cannot pay the required death benefits to the families of militar personel?

    Of all the things they can arrest Charlie Rangle on.....tax evasion, for one. He should have been in jail years ago.
