“A Republican congressman from Texas presented a convicted Jan. 6 rioter with a flag that was flown over the U.S. Capitol after the rioter was released from federal prison on Friday. Rep. Louie Gohmert sought to honor Dr. Simone Gold for contributions to ‘public health, medical freedom and our God-given constitutional rights,’ according to a press release from his office. He called Gold a ‘patriot and an American hero’ and said she was unjustly prosecuted by the Biden administration. … Gold, a COVID-19 vaccine skeptic and the leader of the group America’s Frontline Doctors, pleaded guilty in March to entering and remaining in a restricted building during the Capitol riot. She was sentenced to two months in prison in June.” (09/11/22)
