On January 7, 2021, one day after an unprecedented violent assault on the U.S. Capitol by extremist supporters of outgoing President Donald Trump resulted in the deaths of four people and the first violent breach of the U.S. Capitol since the War of 1812, an unprecedented coalition of over 60 elected officials and progressive advocacy groups sent a letter to the two Republican members of Congress from Colorado who helped Trump incite his supporters to violence, Reps. Lauren Boebert and Doug Lamborn, demanding they resign from office immediately.
“You are directly responsible for the destruction and mayhem that engulfed the U.S. Capitol and American democracy yesterday. Never in our history has such a baseless attempt to subvert the will of the voters been allowed to fester into violence inside the United States Capitol…The events of January 6th 2021, which you each incited and directly encouraged, were a blatant assault on our country. Your role in yesterday’s violent failed coup makes you unworthy, and undeserving of the honor of representing Colorado in Congress. You violated the oath of office you took mere days ago—therefore we demand your immediate resignation and an end to your fanning of the flames that caused this attempted coup at once.”
Sign our petition calling on Reps. Doug Lamborn and Lauren Boebert of Colorado to immediately resign from office.
