If you turned off the internet once Lt. Choi and Cpt. Pietrangelo were arrested, boy did you miss some major news.
Once they were done at the White House, Get Equal moved to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s offices on Capitol Hill and in San Fransisco. There they refused to leave until Speaker Pelosi committed to a vote on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which has been languishing in Congress for…well, years.
After several tense hours, four protesters at Pelosi’s office on the Hill were arrested and taken, coincidentally, to the same facility that Choi and Pietrangelo are being held in. Just before midnight, the ENDA 4 were released without bail.
Incidentally, Choi and Pietrangelo are being held without bail or contact to the outside world until they appear in court tomorrow.
Speaker Pelosi continues to stall on ENDA.
