Months after it aired, the bizarre 2020 Republican National Convention is still making headlines—for all the wrong reasons.

Some may remember Amy Thorn, a West Virginia nurse and one of the many RNC speakers to heap praise upon President Donald Trump, whose handling of the virus is at 35 percent approval after 200+ thousand American deaths.

Thorn used the name "Amy Ford" when speaking at the event, where she detailed her time volunteering as a nurse in New York and San Antonio during the virus.

Her arrest comes just after the indictment of Patricia and Mark McCloskey, who spoke at the convention after conservatives applauded them for pointing guns at peaceful protestors.

Her transgression was just the latest in a political sphere that critics say is rife with criminality and violence.
