Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz made a special request of the United States Capitol Police for her staff members to be treated well during sequester:

"But also just to put in a good word for the frustration that our staff is feeling in the Cannon tunnel," she said. "We're still in the midst of the Spring Break season and the lines are very, very long, and with the closure--again, when we're in session, so not just doors, but magnetometers, having a staff only magnetometer open in the Cannon tunnel as much as possible so there are staff when--particularly when they are walking with us, who can go around them--it would be extremely helpful if you could look at that again and get another mag open as often as possible."

Cannon is a House office building.
