Outrage grows after Wittman sought to disenfranchise millions of voters

Fredericksburg, Va. — Today a coalition of more than 1,100 civic leaders and civil rights activists sent a letter to Rep. Robert J. Wittman demanding he resign from the U.S. House of Representatives following his attempts to undermine the integrity of the November 6, 2020, presidential election.

Rep. Wittman recently voted against certifying the electoral votes from Pennsylvania, even after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and U.S. Supreme Court found no evidence of voter fraud or malfeasance in the election.

Congressman Wittman had also signed on to a failed Texas lawsuit promoting unsubstantiated allegations that officials in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin unfairly changed their voting laws to prevent President Donald Trump from securing a second term.

The letter to Rep. Wittman cities that “[a] true leader has the moral courage to choose that harder right rather than the easier wrong” and notes that “[he]  cannot be trusted to uphold the Constitution.”

A copy of the attached letter was sent to both Republican and Democratic leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives.
