Screen Shot 2013-10-08 at 4.25.08 PM

Swoon Photo of the Day! You know, there are two kinds of Congressmen in the world. Those who want to shut down the government in order to fight against… people being healthy. And those who are willing to engage in civil disobedience and get arrested to fight for justice and fairness. John Boehner for example, belongs in the first category. In the other category, you will find Democrat Representatives John Lewis (D-Ga.), Charlie Rangel of New York, Luis Gutierrez of Illinois, Raul Grijalva of Arizona, Barbara Lee of California, Joe Crowley of New York, Jan Schakowsky of Illinois, Keith Ellison of Minnesota and Al Green of Texas, all of whom participated in today’s “Camino Americano: March for Dignity and Respect” rally for immigration reform, engaged in civil disobedience by blocking the streets near the National Mall and risked arrest. Elise Foley tweeted this photo of Ellison’s arrest.
