Long Island funeral home chain vulture Peter Moloney, known for ghoulishly capitalizing on the publicity for his racket gained by hosting missing white girl Gabby Petito’s wake back in September 2021, was charged Tuesday with a litany of felonies for spraying wasp killer on cops and attacking members of the media during the January 6th MAGA insurrection at the US Capitol.
Sedition Hunters had identified the son of a bitch from photos as early as April 29, 2021. We get why the FBI and the DC US Attorney have to take their time with some of these assholes given the sheer number of them – and that a guy with a chain of funeral homes is less likely to go on the run than some trailer trash hick. That said, we think Moloney should’ve been made a priority earlier given his discrete lack of moral character displayed in this jerk piece by industry news site Funeral Leader.
“We started talking about how we could exceed expectations – how our organization could represent not only ourselves but the funeral profession in the highest regard. We took that really seriously on how important this was,” Moloney told the site in an article with numerous pics of Petito’s wake, including one of the outside of the parlor with two fire trucks holding up a giant banner in front of the Blue Point, New York Moloney Funeral Home location. Again, this was nine months after Moloney had tried to help Trump overthrow American democracy.
