Today, insurrectionist stormed the U.S. Capitol and forced the Vice President and the 535 members of the U.S. House and U.S. Senate to hault a joint session of Congress.  The coup attempt was fueled by baseless calls to overturn the lawful election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as President and Vice President.  President Trump encouraged the insurrectionists.  Sen. Ron Johnson has encouraged, supported, and defended President Trump and his baseless election claims.

Resign Senator Ron Johnson.

Many actions must be taken to address the travesty of today.  The first I took this evening was to write Sen. Johnson to express my disgust with his conduct as a public servant.

The Johnson Letter

Senator Johnson-

I am appalled by your actions representing me and the great state of Wisconsin.  Your calls to investigate baseless claims of voter fraud cap four years of enabling Donald Trump’s attack on American democracy.

Former Defense Secretary Gen. James Mattis said today: “[Trump]’s use of the Presidency to destroy trust in our election and to poison our respect for fellow citizens has been enabled by PSEUDO POLITICAL LEADERS WHOSE NAMES WILL LIVE IN INFAMY AS PROFILES IN COWARDICE [Emphasis added]. Our Constitution and our Republic will overcome this stain and We the People will come together again in our never-ending effort to form a more perfect Union, while Mr. Trump will deservedly be left a man without a country.”

Gen. Mattis was referring to you, Senator.  Your vote against the objection to Arizona’s electoral votes does not hide nor redeem your active role in subverting our democracy.

Resign.

Sen. Ron Johnson has failed to live up to his oath of office to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.  Write to Sen. Johnson and tell him to resign. Or call: (202) 224-5323.

Update: Editorial & U.S. Rep. Fitzgerald

On January 8, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s editorial board called on Sen. Johnson and Congressmen Scott Fitzgerald and Tom Tiffany to resign for “siding with Trump against our republic.”  U.S. Representatives Fitzgerald and Tiffany to reject Electoral College votes in Arizona and Pennsylvania and said in interviews they would have voted to reject the will of voters in Wisconsin as well, if offered.  Sen. Johnson called the editorial “unhinged” but the annotations by the MJS (which I subscribe to) show Sen. Johnson is still peddling in half-truths and disinformation.

The Fitzgerald Letter

Congressman Fitzgerald represents my district in the U.S. House and was just elected in the 2020 election.  Given Congressman Fitzgerald’s vote to reject other states legitimate electoral votes I stand with my principles and sent him the following message. 

Congressman Fitzgerald-

I am appalled by your actions representing me and the great state of Wisconsin.  Given your short tenure, that is amazing. Your vote to reject Electoral College votes from Arizona and Pennsylvania is beyond the pale yet you managed to go further sedition and say in interviews you would have voted to reject the will of Wisconsin’s voters as well, if a vote had occurred?

Former Defense Secretary Gen. James Mattis said recently: “[Trump]’s use of the Presidency to destroy trust in our election and to poison our respect for fellow citizens has been enabled by PSEUDO POLITICAL LEADERS WHOSE NAMES WILL LIVE IN INFAMY AS PROFILES IN COWARDICE [Emphasis added]. Our Constitution and our Republic will overcome this stain and We the People will come together again in our never-ending effort to form a more perfect Union, while Mr. Trump will deservedly be left a man without a country.”

Gen. Mattis was referring to you, Congressman.  Clearly, since you think the 2020 election was fraudulent your election was also fraudulent and you must rectify that.

Resign.

Congressman Fitzgerald has failed to live up to his oath of office to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Write to Congressman Fitzgerald and tell him to resign. Or call: (202) 225-5101.
