We wanted to thank the Washington Post for correcting the record regarding the incident. The Post had earlier reported that Ms. Oberwetter “was arrested after she kept returning to the chamber,” which was patently untrue. She never left the chamber until her arrest, a fact they conceded in the April 19 edition:
An April 16 Metro article mischaracterized the actions of a woman who was arrested while celebrating Thomas Jefferson’s birthday at the Jefferson Memorial. She did not return to the memorial chamber after authorities ushered her out.
