Last Wednesday, Lori Vinson of Morganfield, Kentucky, walked right into the U.S. Capitol along with others who stormed the building. While inside, she recorded videos with her cell phone.
“I hope that is something I remember and say, ‘I’m glad I was a part of that 30 years from now,’” Vinson said.
“You know people have asked, ‘Are you sorry you’ve done that?’ Absolutely I am not. I am not sorry for that, I would do it again tomorrow,” she continued.
Vinson posted about her involvement on Facebook.
On Friday, Vinson says she was fired from Ascension St. Vincent in Evansville. The paperwork says she was terminated for admitting to engaging in criminal behavior at a high profile event, while her account also revealed her employer.
“I participated in none of that,” Vinson said. “I would never participate in that.”
After returning home from work the same day that Vinson said she was fired, the Union County resident was contacted by the FBI about her presence at the Capitol.
