If you haven’t listened to the new episode of Ginger Thread Podcast, I suggest you do. Welcome to my korner. This week I quizzed my co-host, Walsh and CEO Joe who are the faces on Mount Rushmore. Surprisingly, they worked together to get all 4 presidents.
If you are wondering why I would ask them this question, well it is because a 32 year-old man decided to climb this historical monument.
Ayman Doppke was arrested and fined of $1,500 after he pleaded guilty in court this week to illegally climbing Mt. Rushmore. He was arrested on 8/19 after Rangers got a call that there was a man on George Washington’s head. He tried to escape from them and fell 25 feet down an unsafe slope which lead the police to track him down. He was treated for minor injuries by a medic.
I need to know answers as to why someone would climb this 93 year old massive sculpture on the side of a mountain. So, you bet I will be following this story some more. If you find pictures of Doppke climbing, make sure to tweet at me @whatkELSEisnew!
