Wikipedia Bans Congressional Access

Wikipedia has blocked certain US Congressional IP addresses over allegations that certain staffers repeatedly ignored community policy and edited out certain passages of articles they object to.

The IP addresses are blocked for a week until the community can weigh both sides.
