Convicted Insurrectionist Gay Republican Brandon Straka Asking For Money To "Refund The Police"

Brandon Straka, #WalkAway founder and gay man who pled guilty to charges related to his encouragement and participation in the insurrection attempt at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 is now raising money that he claims will go towards helping police officers. But the funds are not for the U.S. Capitol Police, who are currently suing organizers of the riots that led to the insurrection, but supposedly to “REfund police departments.” One police officer, Brian Sicknick, succumbed to his injuries right after the attacks. Four other Capitol Police officers that defended the Capitol that day have died from suicide since. U.S. Capitol Police officers named Straka in a lawsuit as a co-defendant who helped an “unlawful effort” to support the attempted insurrection, alongside Donald Trump, the Proud Boys, and others.
