    ...but not for being crooks. They were arrested at a protest.

    WASHINGTON – Five members of Congress have been arrested while protesting the expulsion of aid groups from Darfur in front of the Sudanese Embassy in Washington.

    They were among eight people led away in handcuffs Monday after crossing a police line.

    They urged world leaders to take a stand against Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir's decision to expel 16 aid agencies from Darfur, where the United Nations says up to 300,000 people have died in fighting that began more than six years ago.

    The arrested lawmakers are Democratic Reps. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, Jim McGovern of Massachusetts, John Lewis of Georgia, Donna Edwards of Maryland and Lynn Woolsey of California.

    Ellison says it's wrong to deny aid to what he calls "the most vulnerable people on our planet."

    Now, if only we could get more of them arrested for what they're doing on Capital Hill, maybe things would get better:D:D

    Well, with Turbo Tax Timmy running the IRS, tax evasion is now only a crime if you're NOT a gov't employee.

    They won't keep them. They were arrested in a civilized country, so they will be released because that country won't want them polluting their native criminal population. Now, had they been arrested in Sudan, that would be a different story. Kindred spirits and all, doncha know.
