Calling it a “historic record of who the Democratic women of Congress are,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi today defended the move by her office to alter a photo taken Thursday on the steps of the Capitol so that four female lawmakers who were late could be “seen” with their colleagues.
The Poynter Institute has an account of what happened.
