Former Midland Mayoral Candidate: ‘We Broke Down Nancy Pelosi’s Office Door’
Jenny Cudd, a former candidate for mayor of Midland, Texas, was seen on video claiming to have been part of the group that broke into the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during the riot at the US Capitol on Wednesday, January 6th.
Cudd can be heard in the video below saying, "[we] didn't vandalize anything, but we did, as I say that, break down Nancy Pelosi's office door and somebody stole her gavel and took a picture sitting in the chair flipping off the camera, and that was on FOX News."
KAMC News reports that Cudd ran for mayor back in 2019, receiving 16 percent of the vote. It's also reported that during an interview on Thursday, January 7th, Cudd said she didn't do anything unlawful and blamed Antifa for the violence at the capitol.
Cudd is a Trump supporter who's not known to have any affiliation with Antifa or the BLM movement. She also reportedly owns Becky's Flowers in Midland.
She posted the following message to her Facebook page on January 3rd.
Despite the account name being Jenny Louise, the account's description is labeled as "Jenny Cudd take 2."
Since her video at the Capitol went viral, her Facebook page has become a place for many critics to lash out at her. Many commenters have said that what she did at the capitol was "shameful."
"How could you be so ignorant to record your own felony? You truly deserve what is coming to you. No one can attack American democracy and get away with it," one commenter said.
Another commenter, in response to the post above, wrote: "I wonder if he will still be your President whenever you get out of jail???"
The FBI is asking anyone for assistance identifying those shown making an unlawful entry into the US Capitol building.
