Let’s meet Paul Westerman, who was one of the Coup Klux Klan who signed an amicus brief in support of Texas v. Pennsylvania, a lawsuit filed at the United States Supreme Court, which contested the results of the 2020 Goat Rodeo:
Rep. Bruce Westerman (R-Ark.) told The New York Times in an interview published Monday that he was with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) in the GOP leader’s office after the riot began.
The lawmakers had reportedly gone to McCarthy’s office after the House chamber was evacuated. However, Westerman said he was left in McCarthy’s inner work area after the GOP leader’s security team took McCarthy to a more secure location.
Westerman said he took a Civil War-era sword that was on display in the office and barricaded himself inside McCarthy’s private bathroom, crouching on the toilet and waiting for the riot to be over, the Times reported.
The thought of a sword wielding Wingnut perched on the terlet feet off the floor —like a common Freshman smoking in the boys room— waiting for Lord Damp Nut’s Orcs to attack is so 4th Reich, I can hardly stand it.
Karma was working overtime that day.
