Dem Congressman’s Staffer Busted Defacing Posters In Capitol Complex, DOJ’s Response Is Infuriating

Capitol Police busted Massachusetts Rep. Jake Auchincloss’s chief of staff doing a little creative artwork all over posters located outside the Capitol complex office of Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and then nailed him with criminal charges, however, the exact same U.S. Attorney General’s office that has been dropping the hammer on Jan. 6 defendants has decided not to approve an arrest warrant, according to documents and interviews from local law enforcement.



This exposes the deeply rooted hypocrisy of the radical left. It’s okay for them to destroy property, so long as the individual being targeted is a conservative, but if someone engages in similar behavior against a Democrat, well, you’re a domestic terrorist.

Leftists aren’t even trying to hide this stuff anymore. That’s how confident they are that they can do whatever they want and not be held accountable for it.

According to a report from Just The News, “Police and Auchincloss also confirmed Monday that the congressman’s office was involved in allowing comedian Steven Colbert’s production team into the Capitol complex last week in an incident that led to security concerns and the arrest of seven members of Colbert’s team.

Capitol Police had asked federal prosecutors in March for an arrest warrant for Timothy Hysom, 51, who has served as a longtime Democrat congressional staffer who previously served under Rep. Adam Schiff before becoming the top aide for Auchincloss, after they found him on hidden camera security footage slapping stickers with various kinds of religious messages on Greene’s posters, according to a copy of the arrest warrant which was obtained by Just The News.

“Police said they believed Hysom may have been involved in seven defacing of posters outside Greene’s office in the Longworth House Office Building between January and March and that he declined to be interviewed when confronted. Hysom was offered a ‘non-custodial interview and he declined and retained counsel,’ the report states,” Just The News went on to say.

“Based on the aforementioned, it is your affiant’s belief that the defendant, Timothy Duane Hysom … did violate DC Code § 22–3312.01 Defacing Public or Private Property,” the arrest warrant revealed.

Officials who spoke with the news outlet stated that Greene was informed in the month of May that the U.S. attorney’s office, located in D.C., which was the lead prosecutor on the crimes that took place on Jan. 6, 2021, had basically said, “nah,” to the case because they didn’t feel a federal judge would let the case move forward.

If you ever wondered if the claims about our government being completely and totally biased toward the left are true, you have your answer. Though you probably should have had the answer a long time ago, because they have been pretty obvious about it.

“Hysom did not immediately return an email seeking comment Monday, but Auchincloss’ spokesperson sent Just the News a statement confirming the defacing had occurred but insisting that treating it as a crime was ‘ridiculous,'” Just the News reported.

Spokesman Matt Corridoni decided to throw his two cents out there about the whole situation, despite the fact no one really cares about his opinion, nor asked him to share it, saying that the real victims in this incident are the individuals who have to read Greene’s posters, which state what science has confirmed for a very long, long time.

There are only two genders, male and female.

Corridoni called that “bullying.”



Yes, that’s right folks. Confirming basic truths about biology is now considered “bullying.”

“While Members of Congress have great latitude in what they do on the inside of their office, they do not own the exterior walls of their office,” Corridoni went on to say. “Regulations published by the House Buildings Commission prohibit ‘posters’ from being posted in the hallways outside of Members’ House offices in the House Office Buildings. Adhering a sticker – to a poster that shouldn’t be there in the first place – is hardly a federal crime.”

“What Tim did was to adhere a series of stickers to foul, mean spirited, bullying posters outside the Congresswoman’s office. These stickers were never threatening and always respectful,” he continued.

“It is certainly not part of a ‘Members’ Representational Duties’ to print signs – at taxpayers’ expense – whose sole purpose is to bully and intimidate the Member across the hall from you,” Corridoni stated. “While the Capitol Police were obligated to pass along Rep. Greene’s accusation of ‘destruction of public property’ to the U.S. Attorney’s office, they have set aside the charges and have declined to prosecute such a ridiculous accusation.”

Continuing to insist that what Hysom did was legal, Corridoni then took an opportunity to clarify that Auchincloss did not know in advance that his chief of staff was going to deface the posters.

Clearly, this was wrong and an act of vandalism. It was a government employee defacing the property of a congresswoman in an attempt to silence her free expression. That’s a problem.

Let’s hope some sort of accountability is exercised in this situation.
