As the official House photographer snapped the last shot of the freshman class of the 105th Congress early Saturday morning, the Washington press corps swarmed around Democrats Loretta Sanchez and Carolyn McCarthy, the New York congresswoman-elect whose husband was killed and son critically injured in the 1993 Long Island Railroad massacre.
