DC Mayor Vincent Gray released after being arrested at budget protest

The headline:  DC mayor released; arrested during sit-in protesting federal control of district budget

The link:  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/dc-mayor-released-arrested-during-sit-protesting-federal-20110411-223656-421.html

The summary:  District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray was released following his arrest at a protest where he and other council members were demonstrating against budget restraints as a result of the recent federal budget deal.

The reaction:  Not that I ever want to see my politicians arrested in protests but good for him standing up for his district.  Far too often we see politicians hiding behind red tape and rhetoric but Gray is sitting out there front and center.

Get used to this.  I have a feeling that we’ll see a lot more of this in reaction to the federal budget deal.
