View From the Capitol—PICTURES

August 9, 2012

Here's a closer look at what's happening on the Hill—the stuff that the C-SPAN cameras don't catch. Bookmark this page. It will be updated regularly.

The flag on the east side of the Capitol building flew at half staff on July 23 to commemorate the victims of the Aurora, Colo., shooting. On Friday, President Obama called for flags on government buildings to be flown at half staff as a tribute to the victims of the fatal shooting.(Shante Hayes)

 

Hundreds of Falun Gong followers meditated on the West Lawn on July 12. Their presence marked the start of a day-long protest featuring speakers, a march and a candlelight vigil, calling attention to the treatment of Falun Gong practitioners in China.(Elahe Izadi)

House Speaker John Boehner and other congressional leaders took a break from debating health care repeal to posthumously award the Congressional Gold Medal to Constantino Brumidi, known for his painting in the Capitol dome, on July 11.(Chet Susslin)

June 22 was quiet around the Capitol. Adding to the lull was Dusty the Clown, who sat on a park bench near the building. Asked how long he would be there, he just shook his head and silently held a sign that read: "Dusty the Clown ... (I really am unemployed!)" He then proceeded to make a balloon animal for a reporter. It was a purple poodle.(Shante Hayes)
