Washington  – Washington, D.C., Mayor Vincent Gray was among those arrested Monday while protesting outside the Capitol, according to Gray spokeswoman Linda Wharton-Boyd.

The U.S. Capitol Police arrested 41 people outside the Hart Senate Office Building, charging them with unlawful assembly, according to Sgt. Kimberly Schneider. They are currently being processed near Capitol Hill.

Gray and other city council members joined protesters asking for freedom to spend District money. The budget deal Congress passed over the weekend bans the District from spending its money to provide abortions for low-income women.

In a tweet Monday, Gray said, “I am calling on all residents of DC to join us NOW at the Hart Senate Office Building to stand for our freedom!”

Tea Party Debt Plan To Go To Vote

    Everything that the Tea Partied Republicans do is for a reason… the tying of D.C. Governments hands on when and where they can spend their federally appropriated funds is so that they can control the plight of Blacks in D.C.

    We all know what they think of the Black population of America as a whole, and D. C. in general! Political racism under the guise of being financially prudent is the agenda of the Tea Partied Republicans – it always has been!

    Now that D. C. is under the bus – over the next few years they are going to point out the growing number of babies born out of wed-lock as another reason to say that Blacks are lazy and prolific baby-makers! I am totally disgusted with the way that Capitol Hill is functioning!
