About Last Night

…so more than a few Capitol Hill reporters are pissed, because last night the House Sergeant-at-Arms office did a very rare thing indeed: close off the second floor to reporters surrounding the House chamber yesterday during the secret session.

These secret sessions are incredibly rare (read: four since 1830). Before the late night session, there was a security sweep and only members were allowed in. They had to sign an oath of secrecy beforehand and check their cell phones and Blackberries at the door.

Reporters weren’t griping about being kicked out of the chamber, but rather that they were banned from the second floor altogether (likely they didn’t want reporters to see who came and went and when).
