News Brief:

Last Saturday, various groups converged on the grounds of the State Capitol for another “Stop the Steal” rally. Members of the neo-fascist political organization known as Proud Boys stood near the road and flashed white power symbols at drivers. Armed, self- proclaimed militia groups, adherents of the Qanon conspiracy theory, and individual Trump supporters lined the road. Many of those gathered waved signs showing that they believe the election was “stolen” from Donald Trump.

Another rally is planned for Saturday, December 19.
