Mystery Protesters Unveil Their Account of Protest
Yesterday's protests on the Hill by disability-rights group ADAPT prompted some coverage (mostly here) and lots of confusion. Having had their signs confiscated outside the building, the group's message was somewhat blurred, though they apparently did a good job of clogging the hallways and getting arrested. We were especially impressed by the response they got from Sen. Charles Grassley, who asked the police to wait until after the office closed to arrest the disabled people, thus ensuring all of them spent the night in jail. Sensitive!
