You learn something everyday: This is Slats, a Capitol Hill fixture and legend.
I've always just called him the Kajagoogoo guy; I wasn't really aware he was an official Capitol Hill icon. To be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of his since I was walking behind him once on the street and some Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence walked by and he said something snide about their appearance to his companion, words to the effect, "look at those freaks".
I resisted the urge to say, "Pot/Kettle/Black"
To see a bunch more pictures of him, check out this site associated with the McLeon Residence: http://seattlenotables.com/
