Congress Websites Down: House, Senate Sites Not Working

Numerous websites for House and Senate members appear to be down Monday night following a speech from President Barack Obama on ongoing talks to raise the debt ceiling.

The website confirms that the following websites are among those affected:
-Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)
-House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio)
-Rep. Elliot Engel (D-N.Y.)
-Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho)
-Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.)
-Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.)
-Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.)
-Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.)
-Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa)

Not all are down though. Among the congressional websites that currently work without any problems is Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's (D-Nev.). The websites of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Jarry Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) also work.

The cause of the outages is not yet clear, though Obama did encourage people to contact their representatives in Congress.

This is a developing story...
