GOP ‘Moderate’ Blasted Capitol Riots — and Cozied Up to a Jan. 6 Bus Trip Organizer 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation was at Jim Worthington’s house and, he says, his girlfriend answered the door with a weapon in hand.It was January 2021, and the Feds wanted to talk to Worthington, a fitness empresario in the Philadelphia suburbs, about his involvement in the Jan. 6 “Stop the Steal” rally that precipitated the storming of the U.S. Capitol building. While Worthington acknowledges he was in D.C. for the rally and that he helped bring busloads of people to the event, he has insisted “we never went to the Capitol.” Worthington, who reportedly founded and led the political action committee People4Trump and spent $30,000 of his own money to serve as a delegate to the Republican convention in 2016, had organized buses to carry hundreds of people to the rally. But he wasn’t available when the agents arrived at his house. He was in his office, on the phone with Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, a sitting three term member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
