Constable Roger L. Mullins of Chalfont was identified in an article by The Philadelphia Inquirer Wednesday as a member of the Oath Keepers, an extremist militia group that participated in the coordination and attack of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

A recent data leak revealed membership records for the group dating back at least three years and included the names of several Pennsylvania law enforcement officials.

Mullins was reelected to a constabulary position in Hilltown last year having first won an election for the office in 2015.

“The Oath Keepers, which claims tens of thousands of present and former law enforcement officials and military veterans as members, is one of the largest far-right antigovernment groups in the U.S. today,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Members of the Oath Keepers, along with two other right-wing radical organizations, the Proud Boys and Three Percenters, had a hand in coordinating and executing the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection, according to USA Today.

The Three Percenters have also been identified as having ties to a Bucks County militia, the Proud American Patriots Network in Jamison, which involved itself in controversial Central Bucks School District school board politics.

The Inquirer attempted to confirm the information contained within the leaked records, however Mullins, along with several others identified, did not respond to inquiries for comment.
