Another New York/Long Island Republican showing the real stuff the Grand Old Party is made of.

[www.nbcnews.com]
Candidate for Santos' old seat is convicted on Jan. 6 charges after testifying he had 'no idea' Congress met in the Capitol.

WASHINGTON — A New York man who is running for the congressional seat previously held by George Santos was convicted this week of charges relating to the Jan. 6 riot after he testified at his trial that he didn't know Congress convened inside the Capitol.

Philip Sean Grillo, of Queens, was found guilty Tuesday of the felony charge of obstruction of an official proceeding, along with a series of misdemeanors like entering restricted grounds and disorderly conduct in a Capitol building, the Justice Department said in a news release.

Grillo, 49, entered and exited the Capitol on Jan. 6 multiple times, at least once through a broken window, according to the Justice Department.

While he was inside the Capitol, Grillo was interviewed on camera about why he was there.

“I’m here to stop the steal,” he said, according to the Justice Department. “It’s our f---ing House!”

During the riot, Grillo recorded videos of himself in the Capitol.

“We f---ing did it, you understand? We stormed the Capitol,” Grillo said in one video, according to the Justice Department. “We shut it down! We did it!”

Grillo’s attorneys had argued that he “believed he was authorized to engage in the conduct set forth in the indictment.”

He was arrested on Feb. 23, 2021.

His lawyers didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on Tuesday's conviction. Grillo hasn’t yet been sentenced.

Any video of him exiting through a broken window? Was his body a projectile that caused the window to break? How high up was the window? Was Putin nearby?

Ah, the 'My client is innocent by reason of stupidity, and it's not a crime if he believes he's authorized. The president said so. No, not Biden— the real president.'

I wish these judges would develop some backbone and make consecutive sentencing the rule and not the exception.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

“he testified at his trial that he didn't know Congress convened inside the Capitol.”

This ^ alone makes him eminently qualified to serve as a Republican representative.

He has been convicted, seems like that would disqualify him from holding office based on the 14th Amendment.

Oh please please please let his defense team challenge this expeditiously to the maximum extent possible so we get clarity before all the big names are convicted and think the 14th ought not apply to their circumstances.
