Democrat Rep. Jamaal Bowman Charged for Pulling Fire Alarm in Capitol Building

U.S. House Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) has been referred to prosecutors by Capitol Police after they investigated his alleged accidental pulling of a fire alarm last month.

Bowman has been charged with one misdemeanor count of falsely pulling a fire alarm.

The maximum sentence he faces is six months in jail.

Bowman claimed it was an accident and other Democrats tried to bolster his claim, it appears prosecutors and Capitol Police aren’t buying it.

Ed Krassenstein reported on X:

“BREAKING: Democrat Congressman Jamaal Bowman has just been referred to prosecutors by Capitol Police for pulling the fire alarm last month in the Capitol building.

“This comes after a thorough investigation took place.

“I’m all for him being charged if it broke a law in any way, and if it wasn’t merely an accident.

“It appears as though investigators don’t believe it was an accident, so if that’s true, he should be charged in my mind.

“What are your thoughts?”

Bowman pulled the alarm while Republicans were trying to start a vote on spending measures to keep the government open on September 30th of this year.

While his action did delay that vote the House was able to keep the government open.

He is set to appear in D.C. Superior Court on Thursday morning.

Just goes to show how low a demoncrat can – and will – go. Any still believe the last election wasn’t wrought with fraud or that an American politician can’t be a street-level thug lacking ethics and morals? If there’s anything unethical going on, know a demoncrat is behind it.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
