Apparently he feels very strongly we should be paying for his constituents to abort their unborn children.
(Politico) — Washington Mayor Vincent Gray and other top city officials were arrested on Capitol Hill on Monday during a protest of the budget deal House Republicans cut with President Barack Obama.
A crowd of about 200 to 300 gathered near the Hart Senate Office Building in opposition to a budget bill passed last week because it places new limits on the city. One measure prevents Washington from spending government funds, even local money, on abortion services.
Capitol Police say they arrested 41 protesters for unlawful assembly, for “blocking passage” on Constitution Avenue near the Capitol.
Capitol Police officers also arrested City Council Member Muriel Browser and City Council Chairman Kwame R. Brown. Other city officials who were arrested included Council members Yvette Alexander, Tommy Wells, Michael Brown and Sekou Biddle. A Capitol Police spokesman said the department is monitoring the situation.
Protestors chanted “Free D.C.” and “We can’t take it no more.”
