“Colbert Report” funnyman Stephen Colbert is stalking the halls of Congress this morning.
Colbert, in town to petition the Federal Election Commission to allow him to operate a political action committee for the 2012 elections, was spotted in the Rayburn House Office Building. There, the House Armed Services Committee hearing room doors also bear signs alerting passers-by that filming is in progress, our tipsters say.
Terri Henderson, 6, center, whose mother is El Salvador, attends a rally with members of Congress at Union Station's Columbus Circle to announce the Restore Opportunity, Strengthen, and Improve the Economy (ROSIE) Act on July 29, 2014. The legislation provides incentives for government contractors to pay a living wage and other benefits that would help low-income workers.
