The Huffington Post reports:
A Jan. 6 defendant who prosecutors say had a “front-row seat” to the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol was sentenced to 60 days in prison on Monday.
Frank Scavo, who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge in September, organized buses that took about 200 people to Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6. His plea agreement included a cooperation provision, and Scavo turned over videos that he filmed inside the Capitol the day of the riot.
Prosecutors, in their sentencing memo, said that Scavo posted a political cartoon on Facebook that showed him driving a “Sedition Express” bus to D.C., and that he described himself in comments as a “Capitol tour guide.”
