On January 6, 2021, a mob of radicalized Republicans, QAnon followers, and Donald Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol.
This attack on our democracy didn’t just happen.
Pennsylvania House Republicans have helped the former president spread his big lie from the beginning. For months they perpetuated false claims of a rigged 2020 election, even signing letters urging Congress to overturn the results and launch investigations into supposed voter fraud. The rioters were listening.
Still, these lawmakers have doubled down.
Failing to condemn domestic terrorism is just the start. House Republicans are spending millions of taxpayer dollars in order to prevent election fraud that even they admit doesn’t exist. Their first attempt at passing a restrictive voter ID law may have been vetoed, but they aren’t giving up.
