EDITOR’S NOTE: HillReporter previously reported information published on Clark County School Watch, that originally and allegedly placed Trustee Katie Williams at a Stop The Steal Rally on January 6, 2021, in Las Vegas, NV. We have been informed that this is incorrect. Williams has, however, been placed at an entirely different Stop The Steal Rally, and CCSW has verified her attendance at a rally on Nov. 5, 2020. Their story has been corrected and updated. Our publication is an aggregator of news, hence we rely on the reporting of multiple news outlets and sources. The article, originally published on Clark County School Watch has been updated and the information has been corrected. When we are notified of a factual error we are happy to correct it and apologize for any confusion. There is no malice here. Ms. Williams is a public figure, and her activities are subject to factual reporting, as indeed they should be. We are open to any further corrections that may need to be made.
Below is a link to the updated CCSW story, now published on the CCSW site, and HillReporter stands corrected:
A school watchdog organization in Clark County, Nevada, is seeking answers on behalf of parents and other concerned citizens after discovering information that suggests a school board trustee attended a Stop the Steal rally in Las Vegas. As we all know that same warcry turned into a deadly insurrection attempt in Washington, D.C. on January 6th, 2021.
Clark County School Watch, an independent nonprofit that keeps an eye on the school system in the Nevada county, reported Tuesday that they had information suggesting a link between a school trustee Katie Williams and members of the Proud Boys group. Moreover, they found tweets suggesting that Williams had attended the Stop The Steal rally on January 6th event held in Las Vegas.

While not every attendee is connected to any criminal activity, Clark County School Watch spoke to witnesses who said Williams stood back from the activity and didn’t want to be associated with the organizers, the FBI is actively investigating multiple events held all over the country, seeking out those involved in planning and in instigating the violence.
The afternoon that the Capitol was attacked, Williams warned on Twitter that the violence would be used by ‘the left’ to excuse curfews, gun bans, and other measures typically implemented when mass violence breaks out.z
You're giving the left the argument for shutdowns, lockdowns, curfews, and gun bans. #WashingtonDC

She also condemned the violence on the grounds that it endangered Capitol police and that conservative “friends and allies” in government were being forced to evacuate.
However, even before the violent attacks began — which were planned and touted on social media days in advance of the rally — the purpose of the event was to pressure Congress not to certify a free and fair election, but to overturn the will of the American people.
Clark County School Watch also noted that Williams maintains (or, rather, did before the site was taken down) an account on Parler, where much of the organization of the event took place.
