Meet the ‘D.C. 41,’ arrested during protest


(By Bill O'Leary/The Washington Post)
The U.S. Capitol Police have released a list of the 41 people arrested Monday evening on Capitol Hill for unlawful assembly during a protest of the federal budget deal.

Of the 41 arrestees, a Capitol Police spokeswoman said that 25 chose to “post and forfeit” — that is, post $50 collateral and forfeit their right to a court date. But 15 chose to go to court. (Another person, activist Billie Day, had to be taken to the hospital Monday night and was not fully processed.)

A spokeswoman for Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D) said that Gray is not among those who will be going to court, sparing the government a crisis of sorts. The crimes, as misdemeanors, are prosecuted by the District’s attorney general. The acting AG, Irvin B. Nathan, was appointed by Gray. Had he challenged his arrest in court, Nathan would probably have had to seek appointment of a special counsel to avoid the appearance of a conflict.

As for the six D.C. Council members that were arrested, Tommy Wells (D-Ward 6) said yesterday that all chose to forfeit their right to a day in court.
