Statement Supporting Actions Taken Related to the Capitol Riot
The members of Virginia’s 10th Congressional District Democratic Committee would like to express our appreciation to Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton, Senator Tim Kaine, and Senator Mark Warner for their many years of public service. This dedication was on display during the alarming January 6th attack by a mob of insurrectionists and rioters on the U.S Capitol. While this attack temporarily forced you and your colleagues and staff into a lock-down for your safety, you courageously and quickly resolved to go back to work and ensured the certification of the 2020 election results. We are thankful you were not harmed, and offer our heartfelt condolences for those who lost their lives in protecting the Capitol and democracy itself.
We thank Representative Wexton for her prompt declaration to support the impeachment of Donald Trump. We also request the initiation of a full-scale investigation into the attack on our citadel of liberty, and to bring the perpetrators and their enablers to full account.
Statement Condemning the Actions of Delegate LaRock
The members of Virginia’s 10th Congressional District Democratic Committee condemn Delegate David LaRock, representing Virginia’s 33rd House of Delegates District, for his participation in the shameful riot on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, in which armed insurrectionists marched on the U.S. Capitol building and invaded it. The invasion took place while Congress was in joint session to count the electoral votes of the states in order to complete the process of electing our next president. U.S. Senators, House Members, and the Vice President of the United States were all present in the building. The insurrectionists murdered a Capitol Police Officer, injured others, and desecrated property belonging to the people of the United States.
Delegate David LaRock has used his position as an elected official to incite violence and spread misleading information and therefore, we call on Delegate LaRock to resign from the Virginia General Assembly.
The next meeting of the 10th CD Democratic Committee will be on February 13th at 10:30 AM. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the meeting will be virtual and streamed via Facebook Live (@10cdvadems).
