Arrests Inside Capitol Building During Health Care Votes


A woman was arrested at the the back door of the office of House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD).

Shouting very loudly as she was being arrested, she was saying a "Hail Mary" over and over and over as they escorted her out.

Ironically, she was arrested by the Memorial Door to the Capitol, right by the sign marking the deaths of two Capitol Police officers who died in a shootout in July 1998.

The gunmen then, Russell Weston Jr., made it into Hoyer's office, which at the time was the office of then House Majority Whip Tom DeLay (R-TX).

Earlier, U.S. Capitol Police say they arrested two people in the House Gallery Sunday. Both were charged with "Disruption of Congress" when they stood up and yelled while the House was in session working on health care legislation votes.

USCP say both men are from Massachusetts.
