In her regular job she helped kids with a range of challenges.

In her spare time, it seems she may have been an insurrectionist.

The latest sensational development in the hunt for members of the mob who stormed the Capitol last week saw the Feds raid the home of a schools occupational therapist suspected of involvement in the riot.

The FBI visited the residence of Christine Priola, who resigned last week as an occupational therapist from Cleveland Metropolitan School District, according to a report by Spectrum News.

Priola had been accused of storming the US Capitol building Wednesday after photos surfaced on social media, but neither she nor the district have confirmed her participation.

Agents were seen on Friday removing several file boxes and a large plastic bag of unknown materials from Priola’s Lake County home. She has not yet been arrested however, according to local media reports.  

In her resignation letter Thursday, Priola said that she didn’t want to get the COVID-19 vaccine or pay union dues that “help fund people and groups that support the killing of unborn children.”

“I will be switching paths to expose the Global evil of human trafficking and pedophilia,” she wrote in the letter obtained by news station WTRF.

The school district has not commented on her resignation, but issued a statement about an unnamed former employee suspected of joining the riots.

“Questions raised today about a former CMSD employee’s alleged involvement in the riots at the US Capitol this week have also raised questions about the District’s position on such behaviors,” a district spokesperson said, WKYC reported.

“While CMSD deeply believes in the right of any individual to peacefully protest, as many did on the Capitol plaza on Wednesday afternoon, the District deeply condemns the actions of those involved in the riots inside the Capitol and on the Capitol grounds.”
