New Images Surface of Couy Griffin at Capitol Insurrection (sic)

Source: KRQE

"NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – Controversial Otero County Commissioner Couy Griffin is trying to get his federal case dismissed for his alleged role in the Capitol insurrection back in January. But the feds are pushing back and are sharing photos about where Griffin was during the riot. News 13 spoke with Griffin over the phone and he claims he never went inside the Capitol but said he didn’t know the area he was in was a restricted section. I didn’t do anything on that day that I would’ve been ashamed to have been a part of or that I couldn’t legally do,” said Couy Griffin over the phone. In a response to Griffin’s motion to dismiss his case, the feds attached screen grabs they said are from a video taken by Griffin’s videographer. Documents said Griffin climbed over a metal barricade where rioters had pushed past Capitol Police officers. Here’s what Griffin told News 13 about the images:

“If you look on what I’m stepping off of, it’s some kind of a little step ladder, [a] little metal object being used as a step ladder. I don’t know what it was maybe used for before but I’m just stepping up from one little platform to another little platform and there’s people above me that are helping me,” said Griffin over the phone. Documents state Griffin then climbed over what looked like a wooden board to get to an area beneath the inauguration platform and then he used an exterior stairwell to access that platform.

This is 'Our' Cowboys for Trump leader. THIS is why I ran for office and (I think) so many DUers supported me. He has many supporters in our county and state. His biggest supporter is now our Congresswoman Yvette Herrell (against whom i ran 4 years ago).
I'm glad our local news referred to it as the insurrection it was.

3. I suspect this reduced his odds at getting his case dismissed

He is incredibly obnoxious at our County Commission meetings. Horrible. He brags about being a speaker at some convention, does nothing for our County...we're waiting for a NM Supreme Court ruling whether our recall effort can go ahead.

7. Will Couey campaign with Yevette Herrell

in NM-2 when she runs for reelection in 2022? Will NM Puke party chairman Steve Pierce be a character witness for Couey?

Will Xochitl Torres Small run again? District 2 gets very little coverage up here in Albuquerque.

I hope she decides soon. We need to start now.

28. i have family in NM and am familiar with 770 kkob in abq, the former limbaugh station

that gives all those republicans lots of support and air time - pierce was and may still get a lot of free time, so is rio grande foundation /rw think tank guy paul gessing.

NM dems really ought to make an issue of the fact that 3 x-limbaugh/republican stations piggyback 2 major state universities. the unis broadcast sports on the stations and the stations use the brand associations to attract advertising and community cred. it's a ridiculous situation and the schools have no excuse. the rw stations are using school athletes, majority black, to excuse racism, stop gun reform, swiftboat dems, sell voter suppression, deny global warming and covid, and basically republican for 100% of their political programming. there are many alts now and as of a few years ago the UNM licensing co actually was paying KKOB, for some reason.... even if the cons scream about lost uni revenue or partisanship/free speech consider that those stations will fight school funding increases and weigh in on selections and elections of school admin, regents, etc (who is, isn't acceptable)! and if it's lost revenue maybe start a fundraiser, which would increase visibility.

if pierce/trump/koch/putin would pay $1000 for 1hr of talk radio infomercial then 3 stations x 15 hrs/day x 5 days =$225,000 worth every WEEK, FREE to republicans.

from fakenewsradio.org New Mexico 2, New Mexico St. 1

get a discussion going in one of those schools and the other might be shamed into following. school groups should be interested, and maybe it would be a good topic for debate teams.

12. Excellent example of the amazingly narrow range of insurrectionists.

Narrow minded, moronic, bigoted, blood oath swearing rabid Reich GOP. And the conspiracy is nationwide.

4. That moron is shocked his high office isn't protecting him

and that free speech applies to speech, not violence. The sooner that bozo is servicing a sentence, the better. Maybe he'll move out of the country afterward, set up a laughable government in exile.

I thought CapitOl only referred to the White House.

14. It's confusing, for sure...

A capitol is a building in which a legislature operates. In the United States, the Capitol is a building in Washington DC where the United States Congress meets.

22. CapitAl

Is either a capitalized letter or the city where head of government located: Like Raleigh, NC is the capital of NC, and DC is the US capital, but the US House is the Capitol building.

And people wonder why foreigners get confused learning English? Lol

9. Ignorance (And/or Stupidity) is no excuse.

And 'not recognizing' that was a piece of fence blocking off a restricted area doesn't hurt either, actually it's knid of Stupid if you ask me.

How stupid does he thing the judge is? I guess he believes Stupid is as Stupid does?

Of coarse, Stupid knows no bounds.

His lawyer is stupid too: 'Gee Judge, he's just Stupid, can't you forgive him this one time? '

Sorry, I'm in a Stupid State of Mind.

Thanks for the OP Duhneece

It's good for folks to know about ALL the insurrectionists...and traitors...and I'm sick to have to share MY County Commissioner being such a suck-up pus-oozing asshole.

21. Why not stupid and a pathological liar?

You could make disparaging comments, but that would be insensitive to those people who are cognitively challenged. He just looks like another Trumpist, he believes obvious BS, so everyone else should too.

don't you, Denise?

Tell you what. You keep running against these republican jackasses and we'll keep sending you money, until the voters of your district smarten up and elect a fine Democrat like yourself.

If you've got the stomach to keep running, we've got the money to keep you going. How's that?

With your support, I am inspired to work my ass off, organizing and canvassing. You give me the financial support to do it.
It’s impossible to express my gratitude…except with hard work with others. We can turn our district blue.
