Each week our award winning photojournalists Tom Williams and Bill Clark take hundreds of shots around the Capitol. A select group of those are filed into our archive. Few from that group make it into our paper and on to the website. Each week, we choose photos that may not have made it through the process and present them as our photos of the week. You may find some news you missed from around the Hill. Luckily, Roll Call was there to capture the moments for you.



This week’s photos feature North Carolina Senate candidate Thom Tillis, a dog named Pepe, professional athletes, Greg Heads and Pussy Riot.

    Regardless of collectivist attempts to confuse legitimate government functions with “socialism”, it is important to remember that they are not the same things.
