U.S. Congressman Tim Burchett, a Republican representing Tennessee’s Second Congressional District, has reportedly filed legislation to go after the group Antifa.
This, according to the Nashville-based FOX 17, which said Burchett has introduced the “Unmasking Antifa Act.”
“The bill would issue fines and/or imprisonment for up to 15 years for any individual who wears a mask or disguise while committing a crime, including threatening or intimidating another individual exercising their constitutional rights or privileges,” the station reported.
Burchett reportedly said Antifa members are “cowards.”
