It seems that ugly crowd of protestors harassing members of Congress in the Capitol complex this afternoon got even uglier than we thought. As noted earlier, in addition to menacing behavior toward multiple members of Congress, one protestor called Rep. Barney Frank a “faggot”, a taunt greeted by laughter from fellow protestors.

We’re now getting reports that other protestors yelled “nigger” at Rep. John Lewis (D-GA).

More shortly.

Late Update: Our account of the ugliness, from our two reporters on the Hill.
