Anyone else outraged that Looie Gohmert awarded a Capitol flag to a convicted 1/6 coup participant?

And he was a TX JUDGE. We have met the enemy. Traitorous, Seditionist, Conspiracy enablers. Lock them all up.

Gohmert is a blithering idiot, to put it kindly.

19. How many years was he a Judge in TX. That is a scary thought, and real experience for many I'm sure.

It is a very Republican district, but at least he is gone.

7. The Capitol Flag Program is sort of silly

They fly hundreds of flags every day to support this program that has been going on since 1937. there are a bunch of poles and some staff members that run flags up the pole for a few seconds, lowers it, and packages them with certificates of authenticity. Anyone can order one ($7 -$18 depending on the size) and naturally Congressional members use them as gifts for those special friends.

8. Why not give the coup participant the empty shell casing that was used to kill Babbitt?

Same level of class in my opinion.

10. Gohmert disgraced himself by being a lead petitioner.

He tried to get SCOTUS to enjoin Pence from following the Electoral Count Act.

Gohmert's attorney on that petition was Sidney Powell.

28. seems like there ought to be mental health screening that is administered to anyone having that much

power over others' lives. Law enforcement too.
