City Councilman Corey Johnson was arrested Wednes­day outside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s DC office.

Johnson (D-Manhattan) was held briefly for what he said was “an act of peaceful civil disobedience” against the ObamaCare repeal effort.

“I and hundreds of others with pre-existing medical conditions . . . occupied the offices of Republican senators and demanded that they immediately cease all efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act,” wrote Johnson, who is HIV-positive.
