It has come to our attention that recents twitter feeds are reporting false information concerning current conditions at the U.S. Capitol. Conditions at the U.S. Capitol are currently normal, read a press release from Sergeant Kimberly Schneider.

The U.S. Capitol Police are currently investigating the reporting.
UhOh, The editors of TheOnion may soon find themselves charged with "Practicing satire without a license - and not the good kind of satire that makes fun of conservatives, either, but the mean-spirited kind that scares good-hearted regular people"
