The five representatives, all Democrats, were arrested after disregarding warnings from police that were trying to protect Sudan’s embassy. Along with Donna Edwards (MD), the legislators apprehended by police were Jim McGovern (Mass.), John Lewis (Ga.), Lynn Woolsey (Calif.), and Keith Ellison (Minn.).

A spokesman for Rep. Edwards stated that the five members of Congress were fined and later released. The spokesman also stated that Rep. Edwards, expecting to be arrested, hired a defense lawyer before the protest.

Republicans aren't talkers and posers, seeking pats on the back for their "compassion" ... but actually do something.
