Family of Rioter Sues Capitol Police for $10 Million

The family of one of the terrorists who attacked the capital has filed a lawsuit. The victim was a terrorist killed in the act of attacking the capital. https://politicalwire.com/2021/04/30/family-of-rioter-sues-capitol-police-for-10-million/

“The family of Ashli Babbitt, who was fatally shot while participating in the Jan. 6 invasion of the U.S. Capitol, plans to sue the police department and the officer who fired the gun for at least $10 million,” CNBC reports.

“Babbitt and a group of rioters gained access to a hallway outside the Speaker’s Lobby, which leads to the House chamber. She tried to climb head first through the broken glass window of a door separating the hallway from the lobby, which had been barricaded from the inside with furniture.”

No lawsuit has been filed yet. I look forward to reading the pleadings. I wonder if the idiot attorney filing this case is also going to seek to represent the family of Bin Laden and Boston Marathon bomber? Representing the family of terrorists who are killed in the act of terror will be an interesting new area of practice. I doubt that the idiot who is representing the terrorist Ashli Babbitt will face much competition.

Again, I look forward to reading the pleadings in this case.

Arizona Secretary of State Says GOP 'Audit' Is a Farce

This stunt is not an audit https://politicalwire.com/2021/04/27/arizona-secretary-of-state-says-gop-audit-is-a-farce/

Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D) slammed the efforts of Republicans in her state to lead an election audit of ballots cast during 2020, saying that it “seems like such a farce” and should end, The Hill reports.

Said Hobbs: “A group of Republicans are continuing to try to appease their base who refuse to accept that… Trump lost Arizona and that he’s not the president anymore.”

She added: “I kind of don’t want to call it an audit. I think that’s an insult to professional auditors everywhere because they’re making this stuff up as they go along.”
