The U.S. Capitol Police said in a statement that the women were charged with lewd and indecent acts, a misdemeanor. Police said they did not know whether Boehner was in his office when the protesters converged shortly after12:30 p.m. and disrobed.
Boehner's spokeswoman did not immediately comment."*
Cenk Uygur breaks down the naked truth behind the protest: protestors were trying to bring attention to the proposed over $1.2 bilion in cuts to HIV/AIDS research funding that will literally "make them sick." If not kill them

Was an odd protest. But guess what sometimes these acts raise awareness to issues and get peoples attention. The issue is that medical research funding which AIDS research and what not is covered under this, might be cut, and might cost peoples lives. Odd protest? Sure. Did it grab peoples attention and is raising awareness to this issue? Yes.
