Rep. Meyers Condemns Washington D.C. Riots

Rep. Beth Meyers issued the following statement regarding the rightwing extremists who stormed the United States Capitol Building in Washington D.C. while Congress held a joint session to verify the results of the 2020 Presidential Election.

“I am shocked by the events we witnessed yesterday at our nation’s Capital. For the past 4 years the rhetoric from our President and the GOP have only fanned the flames of divisiveness and hate. Conspiracy theories and blatant lies can no longer go unchecked.

“Our right to vote is a fundamental pillar of our democracy. The laws we have in place to ensure each ballot counts is sacred. Democrats and Republicans alike must strongly condemn these acts of violence and regain the people’s faith in our democratic process”
