2020 NY State Senate Candidate Busted In Capitol Riot

The New York Daily News reports:

A Brooklyn plumber with a short-lived political career was busted Wednesday for climbing though a U.S. Capitol building window to join fellow rioters in the Jan. 6 insurrection — with photos showing the bearded suspect amidst the crazed crowd inside the federal landmark.

Daniel Christmann, 38, was arrested at his home on federal charges after a pair of tipsters identified him to investigators, according to court documents.
