Leaked list of Oath Keeper membership shows elected officials, law enforcement and military

The names of hundreds of U.S. law enforcement officers, elected officials and military members appear on leaked membership rolls of the far-right extremist group the Oath Keepers. Some elected officials in Arizona appear on the list.  

The group has been accused of playing a key role in the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 last year.

The Anti-Defamation League Center on Extremism pored over more than 38,000 names from leaked membership lists and identified hundreds believed to be in law enforcement and military, and more than 80 running or serving in public office. 

Being on the list does not mean someone was ever an active member or even shares its ideology. Still Arizona state Sen. Wendy Rogers has claimed to be a member of the group and has spoken during meetings.
