The Georgia Republican introduced a bill this week to give the Congressional Gold Medal to the teenager who was acquitted of murder on self-defense grounds for shooting rioters who attacked him.
The text of HR6070 reads that it honors Mr. Rittenhouse as having “protected the community of Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a Black Lives Matter (BLM) riot on August 25, 2020.”
The bill has almost no chance of succeeding in a Congress led by Democrats, many of whose members called Mr. Rittenhouse a white supremacist, a vigilante, a murderer and more.
It would have to be co-sponsored by two-thirds of both houses of Congress, pass committees in each chamber, and be signed by the president.
