A Presbyterian minister is suing Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the U.S. Capitol Police and Vice President Kamala Harris in a last-ditch effort to hold a Good Friday vigil at the barricaded Capitol in Washington, D.C.
Fencing and restrictions were both put in place around the Capitol after the Jan. 6 incursion amid concerns that more violence could take place.
Although no incidents have taken place since then, access to the Capitol remains restricted. An outer ring of fencing was removed last week, but an inner ring remains, according to USA Today.
Rev. Patrick Mahoney of Fredericksburg, Virginia, is suing the above-mentioned parties because, despite some relaxation of security, he is not being allowed access to the Capitol grounds as he has in the past.
