NYC man who breached US Capitol seen for first time since siege

The New York City man who joined a mob that breached the US Capitol was seen leaving his home Friday for the first time since he was revealed to be the son of a prominent Brooklyn judge.
Aaron Mostofsky — who sported a wacky fur costume inside the breached building as he griped about a “stolen election” — was caught on camera leaving his home while carrying a suit on a hanger and a plastic bag.
Mostofsky, the son of Brooklyn Supreme Court judge Shlomo Mostofsky, a well-known figure in the Orthodox Jewish community, was apparently still a free man Friday afternoon — as other protesters who stormed the building were arrested.
On Friday, Mostofsky had traded his fur getup for a bright orange winter coat and baseball cap.
On Wednesday, Mostofsky breached the building with the mob, telling the Post, “We were cheated. I don’t think 75 million people voted for Trump — I think it was close to 85 million. I think certain states that have been red for a long time turned blue and were stolen, like New York.”
A spokesman for Shlomo Mostofsky, Ken Fisher, said Friday, “Justice Mostofsky has no knowledge of these unfortunate events.”
