A Wisconsin man is scheduled for his initial appearance in federal court this afternoon after his arrest in Eau Claire. Kevin Daniel Loftus will be charged with illegally entering either house of Congress, or adjacent areas, and disorderly conduct on the grounds of the Capitol. His appearance in U-S District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin is at 3:00 p-m. Loftus had posted on Facebook he was among the people wanted for entering the U-S Capitol during last week’s riot. Pictures on social media show him holding an American flag and smiling in the halls of Congress. Federal authorities have arrested people in Arizona, Florida, and Iowa for similar actions.
