“We were looking for Nancy to shoot her in the friggin’ brain, but we didn’t find her,” said Doylestown’s Dawn Bancroft, as she and other insurrectionists rioted in the Capitol on Jan. 6, according to the FBI affidavit against her.
Now, this “America First” Republican is shooting to be a Republican committeewoman in Doylestown Boro.
“It’s very troubling to hear that the reason [she] was at the Capitol on Jan. 6 was essentially to murder the speaker of the House,” said U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan.
Yet, the former gym owner, Bancroft was able to plead guilty (alongside her friend and Bucks County resident Diana Santos-Smith) to a misdemeanor charge.
The judge also questioned why prosecutors would allow such a sweetheart plea deal to someone who threatened to kill Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, as the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
Because she got a slap on the wrist and is free, Bancroft now wants to help shape the Bucks County Republican Party.
The Bucks County Republican Committee did not endorse her.
Six Bucks County residents were among a total of 64 Pennsylvanians charged in the Jan. 6, 2021 assault on the Capitol.
