Last August, Wendy Rittenhouse drove her son Kyle across state lines to a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Her underage son was armed with a machine gun on the pretense of defending businesses. Instead, Kyle Rittenhouse used that gun to kill two protesters.
The teen-aged shooter later became a celebrity is some Conservative circles. Ann Coulter claimed that she would vote for him for President.
And Trumpy lawyer Lin Wood stepped in to defend the young man. But the relationship between Wood and the Rittenhouse’s has soured. Wendy Rittenhouse recently accused the lawyer of taking advantage of her young son.
The Mother of the shooter told the Law and Crime Objections podcast, “They used Kyle to gain money, gain Twitter followers. I felt now they didn’t care about Kyle.”
She continued, “He used my son’s image to make profit off of that. And I asked for an accounting of it. And I never got it. I was ignored… I asked Lin, where’s the money? I wanted to see the books, like the accounting books.”
Wendy Rittenhouse closed by saying, “He told me that my son would be safe in jail because he thought that on the night of the election… that there was going to be Armageddon. And Kyle was safer in jail.”
Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial is scheduled to begin on November 1st.
