Former Republican representative Adam Kinzinger’s PAC is selling autographed copies of his House Select Committee’s report from January 6 for $100 each.
The hardback copy of the final report is signed by Kinzinger and is available on the website of Country First, a PAC founded by Kinzinger in Illinois in July 2021.
He is charging $100 for a report that should be given for free to the taxpayers who sponsored it.
In order to sell the autographed copies, the internet listing makes various misleading statements concerning January 6 and President Donald Trump.
The item erroneously asserts that Trump “instigated” the disturbance on January 6, despite the fact that Kinzinger’s own House Committee has no evidence to support such charges.
“On January 6, 2021, the United States came perilously close to losing its democracy,” the listing alleges.
“A mob instigated by the president of the United States violently attacked the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., seeking to disrupt the certification of the electors in the presidential election and prevent the peaceful transfer of power for the first time in American history.
“To uncover the truth of the events, the United States House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol was formed as a bipartisan select committee to investigate the U.S. Capitol attack.
“This is the official committee report of the investigation into the attack—perhaps the most vital congressional investigation in American history—with exhibits, and witness testimony.
“This hard-bound copy of the historical record is offered as a limited edition and signed by Congressman Adam Kinzinger, who served on the committee.
“All proceeds will benefit charitable organizations working to uphold and defend democracy in America,” the listing says.
Earlier, Fox News claimed that the item had been deleted following inquiries.
Nonetheless, the listing remains active.
Kinzinger is also selling autographed baseballs for a staggering $50 apiece.
The entry states:
“Our Sacred Sandlot is being threatened.
“That’s why we’re putting together teams of reasonable people and common-sense solutions.
“Become part of the solution and donate today to get an official Country First limited-edition American Sandlot baseball signed by Adam Kinzinger!”
He is also selling “Politically Homeless” ball caps.
The listing says:
“Are you feeling politically homeless in a toxic political environment?
“The Politically Homeless product line shows that toxic party politics are tearing our country apart and that we’re coming together to end the toxicity.
“All proceeds support the values we all share!”
