Jacob Chansley, better known as the “QAnon Shaman,” was sentenced to 41 months in prison Wednesday afternoon for his role in the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol.
A former actor, Chansley knew how to grab the spotlight by showing up in a costume of a horned helmet, fur pelts draped across his bare chest and his face painted red, white and blue. In one hand he carried a spear fashioned out of a flagpole. In the other, a bullhorn.
Once inside the Capitol, Chansley shouted the command to fellow insurrectionists to hunt down members of Congress.
