Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman Schultz have refused to condemn the Occupy Wall Street movement and even at times have embraced it.  Over the weekend, the Occupy D.C. camp was finally cleared out, but the anarchists protestors didn't leave without slamming a brick in the face of a police office while assaulting others.

Authorities say 11 people have been arrested in Washington's McPherson Square since Park Police began clearing away tents from one of the nation's last remaining Occupy sites.

David Schlosser, who is a spokesman for the U.S. Park Police, said Sunday that one of those arrested was charged with felony assault on a police officer and assault with a deadly weapon. That person is accused of hitting an officer in the face with a brick Saturday evening. The officer was treated at a hospital.

Three others were charged with assault on a police officer.
