Philip Sean Grillo, a candidate for a former congressman’s seat, has been found guilty of multiple charges related to the January 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol.

Grillo, who is running to replace the ousted congressman George Santos, was convicted of obstruction of an official proceeding, entering a restricted building, disorderly conduct, and parading in a Capitol building.

Despite his pending sentencing, Grillo is among 19 candidates for the Long Island seat, with a special election scheduled for February 13. (Trending: Democrat Accused Of Blocking Release of Jeffrey Epstein Flight Logs)

He was arrested in February 2021 after being found at the front of a group of rioters inside the Capitol.

Prosecutors argued that Grillo was “at the front of a group of rioters facing the police line” on the West Plaza of the Capitol.”

“He entered the building through a broken window and carried a megaphone,” alleged prosecutors.

Grillo was reportedly stopped inside the Capitol, where he allegedly said, “I’m here to stop the steal. It’s our f—— House.”

The government also accused Grillo of filming himself smoking marijuana inside the U.S. Capitol.

Over 1,230 people have been charged in connection with the Capitol breach, with more than 440 facing charges related to assaulting or impeding law enforcement.
