Commander Leah Bolger committed the crime of interrupting a public congressional hearing of the Super Committee to deliver a message from the 99 percent: End the wars and tax the rich to fix the deficit. Because of her 45-sec transgression, Commander Bolger now faces a court trial April 12, where she could receive a maximum jail sentence of six months.
