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.
