Alabama AG leads nonprofit that helped organize march at Capitol

https://www.alreporter.com/202...ze-march-at-capitol/

Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall plays a critical role in the group that helped organize the protest and rally that preceded the riots, attack and attempted insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.

Marshall leads the Republican Attorneys General Association’s dark-money nonprofit Rule of Law Defense Fund, which is listed as a participating organization for the March to Save America on the march’s website, as are the groups Stop the Steal, Tea Party Patriots and Turning Point Action.

The website is now down, but archived versions show RLDF as a participating group.

“I am honored to lead RAGA’s policy branch, the Rule of Law Defense Fund, and bring conservative attorneys general together in promotion of federalism, freedom, and the rule of law,” Marshall said in a Nov. 10 statement to RAGA.


Wednesday’s riots resulted in one woman’s death after she was shot by police while entering the Capitol, and the deaths of three others due to “medical emergencies” during the riot, including one Alabama man, Kevin Greeson of Athens. Another Alabama man, 70-year-old Lonnie Coffman of Falkvillle,  was arrested near the Capitol and charged with firearms crimes. The New York Times reported a 70-year-old man was arrested with a gun and ingredients to make Molotov cocktails.

Marshall has supported President Donald Trump’s challenges to the outcome of the November election and signed Alabama on to a failed election lawsuit, filed by Texas, aiming to overturn the election results. Marshall has shared in Trump and his supporters’ allegations of election fraud, which have been debunked numerous times. Numerous other court cases seeking to overturn results in battleground states have been dismissed.

Support Democracy. This might be the dumbest country on earth...

several contributed to the protest, few contributed to the violence.  several examples of media twisting the reporting of violence. was it peaceful when protesters banged on the doors of the supreme court?  burned Minneapolis? over took Police building?  attacked police at US court house with lasers? 

the DC riot no burning, no statues over turned, did you see video of protester walking in peaceful and no attempt to stop?     how many protester were there? how many committed violence? 

sadly there are few real discussions, mostly name calling  guess if we can't talk rationally, we can't expect elected officials to.  My view is DC is corrupt. Media is corrupt.  And now we are seeing the attack grow as twitter accounts are closed, Parlor being forced closed..  more reports of election fraud.  However sadly the left doesn't care, as long as they win.

Well, they did kill a DC police office... They did try to stop a duly elected POTUS from being certified by Congress... but I'm sure they're good people.

Sadly, the Right didn't care what anyone else thought, for the past 4 years, and now they're concerned with 'the other side' winning. Republicans are screaming about private businesses deciding who can use their services... kinda like a bakery being forced to make a cake for a gay wedding.... if only someone had tried to talk to Republicans ... to try to get them to understand the consequences of their actions for the past 4 years.  Republicans were only concerned with 'winning'.

What was the purpose of the protestors?

How many police officers got killed in the protest?

Republicans are whining about a private company denying service.

The right, rightwing media and rubes like you have attacked democracy for the last 12 years.
