Rep. Andy Kim (D-N.J.) thinks of the Capitol Rotunda as the “most beautiful room in the most beautiful building” in America and a “physical manifestation of our Constitution.” But when he found himself standing there on the evening of Jan. 6, 2021, just hours after a violent mob of insurrectionists had, in his words, “desecrated and disrespected” the historic monument, all he could think to do was drop to the ground and start to help clean up the mess.
