What we know so far about Nachman Mostofsky
Nachman Mostofsky, is vice president of the South Brooklyn Conservative Club, and an elected district leader in the borough. He also attended the rally but said he left before the group entered the Capitol building.
Aaron Mostofsky, who told the NY Post Wednesday he’d come to protest a “stolen election,” was holding a police riot shield as a mob of rioters swarmed the building Wednesday.
“We were cheated. I don’t think 75 million people voted for Trump — I think it was close to 85 million,” Mostofsky told the Post.
“I think certain states that have been red for a long time turned blue and were stolen, like New York.”
Shlomo Mostofsky couldn’t immediately be reached for comment Thursday.
But his sibling, Nachman Mostofsky, told the outlet: “My brother did nothing illegal…He definitely was not part of the riot.”
Like the vast majority of those who breached the capitol, Mostofsky was permitted to leave without arrest.
