TURLOCK, Calif. — Former Turlock Mayor Gary Soiseth was recently in Washington D.C. on business. In his post-political life, he’s does consultation work for irrigation districts and water.
His most recent business trip, during the first week of January, however, coincided with an insurrection on the national’s Capitol, resulting in the death of a police officer and four others.
On Wednesday, Jan. 6, President Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building in Washington D.C. while lawmakers were trying to confirm the electoral college certifications and making Democrat Joe Biden the presidential election winner.
Soiseth believes he not only shared a hotel with people who participated in the Capitol riots, but also a plane ride back to California.
