For too long, too many Republican leaders at all levels of government put party and political ambition over country and constitution. Our nation’s Capitol has now been desecrated and insurrection ensued. The Republican leaders who stoked the violence knew better, but didn’t have the courage to tell people the truth.
While the horrors played out over several hours that day, the seeds for this violence, treachery and destruction were sown over months by people in chief positions of power who refused to accept the results of a duly run election.
Peace at the Capitol has thankfully been restored, but the damage that was done to our democracy will not be fixed if you do not stand on the side of decency and urge responsible governing.
Please do the right thing -- the patriotic thing – by putting country over party and work to restore the people’s faith by denouncing the actions that led to this sedition. I urge you to stop pushing legislation to consolidate political power in the legislature and judiciary and start focusing on working families, senior residents, veterans and Pennsylvanians' health and economic recovery from COVID-19. Please work to restore the people’s faith and work to strengthen the fabric of our sacred democracy.
