GOP lawmaker proposes bill to strip convicted rioters of unemployment benefits

Rep. Jim Banks has released a new bill that would strip convicted rioters of unemployment benefits as well as make them pay for the policing of riots.

Banks wrote on Twitter “Threatening the life of a US Senator is a felony.”

“Under my bill, the Support Peaceful Protest Act, Sen. Paul’s attackers would be forced to cover the cost of policing the protests & lose access to federal benefits. Enough already!” He added.

Tweeting a link to Breitbart’s coverage of his bill, Banks wrote:

“It’s not just George Soros or any other big leftwing group paying these rioters to burn down our cities and destroy America.

You are.

My bill would stop it.”
