The gay former Army lieutenant who handcuffed himself to the White House fence to protest the military’s now repealed “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy was found guilty in federal court on Thursday and fined $100. The guilty finding against Daniel Choi came as the West Point graduate tried to turn the usually staid courtroom of the District’s federal court into a lively venue for protesting his prosecution for his role in the November 2010 demonstration. Magistrate Judge John M. Facciola said his finding was consistent with the First Amendment because of the “radically different” approach of Choi and 12 others who refused to follow orders to leave the area in front of the White House.
