New lawmaker's tattoo has ties to far-right anti-government movement
March 10, 2021
The Three Percenters movement has gained representation in the Wyoming Legislature — at least symbolically.
A photograph resurfaced this week of freshman Rep. Marshall Burt (L-Green River) that shows a tattoo on his left forearm — the Roman numeral “III” surrounded by 13 stars, above the year 1776. The symbol is commonly associated with a far-right, anti-government movement and the popularization of militia groups.
In a written statement this week, Burt said he is not involved in any militia groups, and got the tattoo because he enjoyed the symbolism of what it stood for.
