‘QAnon Shaman’ rioter should be given organic food while in jail after going on hunger strike, federal judge says | Las Vegas Local Breaking News, Headlines

(CNN) — US Capitol rioter and so-called “QAnon Shaman” Jacob Chansley should be given organic food while in a Washington, DC, jail, a federal judge said Wednesday, after Chansley went on an apparent hunger strike last week claiming non-organic food was against his religion and sickened him.

DC District Court Judge Royce Lamberth decided the accommodations could be made for Chansley because he had been fed organic food in detention in Arizona, and arguments about his adherence to Shamanism were enough to also convince the judge.

Chansley hasn’t eaten since last Monday, his attorney said.

“My client made it clear that while he did not oppose fasting, he was not in position to put into his body things that shamanism believes to be impure… things that suck the life out of your body,” Chansley’s lawyer Al Watkins said in court Wednesday afternoon.

Earlier this month, a federal judge decided Chansley,

Getting your fair food, funnel cake fix without foot fatigue, is frankly fabulous | News

Tamia Lee and her grandmother Brenda Mendoza had already picked up McDonald’s food to-go Friday when they spotted the Fair Food Drive-Thru across from the Kern County Fairgrounds.

They immediately decided the McBurgers would have to wait as they pulled into the sprawling parking lot on South P Street and, without even getting out of their car, began ordering caramel corn, tacos and the sort of crazy desserts one expects to find at the Kern County Fair.

“I didn’t know anything about it,” the 17-year-old said of the fair food festival. “But my grandma said, ‘Oh, let’s get some funnel cake.’”

Friday kicked off the second weekend of the Fair Food Drive-Thru, which drew enthusiastic crowds in September after COVID-19 restrictions shut down the annual county fair.

It’s one thing canceling the fair, but it’s quite another to cancel the food, too, said 75-year-old Jean Kleinknight, who drove through in
