The one-time Texas mayoral candidate who bragged about tearing down Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office door during last week’s storming of the US Capitol was all smiles following her court appearance Wednesday.
Jenny Cudd was pictured beaming from ear-to-ear as she left a Midland courthouse, where she appeared before US Magistrate Judge Ronald Griffin on charges of entering a restricted building and disorderly conduct, The Midland Reporter-Telegram reported.
Cudd, who now owns a flower shop, was taken into custody earlier Wednesday, along with another rioter, Eliel Rosa, in connection with the Jan. 6 insurrection, said Daryl Fields, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Antonio.
After the siege, Cudd posted a video on Facebook laughing about her involvement and boasting that “we did break down … Nancy Pelosi’s office door” and “stole her gavel.”
