Aaron Calvin, the former Des Moines Register reporter who “gained fame” by unearthing a couple of old tweets by Carson King, called Iowans who showed up at the Iowa Capitol Monument Appreciation Day “right-wing vigilantes.”
Calvin was relieved of his duties from the Register after his own controversial tweets emerged.
For the record, the event was relatively low-key. If there was any “vigilantism,” I totally missed it.
Earlier this week, Calvin wrote a story with the headline “Des Moines Police Start Riot at Iowa Capitol, Then Play the Victim.”
