If you think that Rep. Bob Good (R-VA05) needs to go, sign the Indivisible Charlottesville letter here, and help them get to 1,000 signatures by January 21. As the letter explains, the reason Good needs to go is that he has deliberately undermined Americans’ confidence in the results of the November 2020 election, and in so doing contributed to the dramatic destabilization of our country.” Also, the letter cites Good’s “continued amplification of baseless claims and conspiracy theories surrounding the election, even after the deadly attacks at the Capitol, are reckless to the point of culpability.” And, as if all that’s not bad enough:

“…at least one member of your staff attended the murderous riot at the Capitol on Wednesday, January 6th, along with her husband, the Chair of the Fifth District Republican Party. The same staffer has a long history of publicly expressing racist and transphobic views. You have refused to fire that staffer, even as we learn new details of how dangerous the January 6 event was to the rule of law and to our democracy itself.

So yeah, please sign the letter calling for Good’s resignation. If that doesn’t work, the U.S. House should move to expel Good and other seditionists, as well as to investigate for possibly aiding the insurrectionists on or before January 6th.

January 2021

Representative Robert Good
1213 Longworth HOB
Washington, D.C. 20515

Congressman Good:

As the newly elected congressman from Virginia’s Fifth District, you had the opportunity to demonstrate that you could transcend partisanship and carry out your duty to represent all of your constituents, whether or not they voted for you. You simply needed to vote to accept the certified Electoral College votes from all fifty states—a routine part of a free and fair electoral process. Instead, you deliberately undermined Americans’ confidence in the results of the November 2020 election, and in so doing contributed to the dramatic destabilization of our country.

Your continued amplification of baseless claims and conspiracy theories surrounding the election, even after the deadly attacks at the Capitol, are reckless to the point of culpability. At a time when responsible elected officials should reflect on the suffering and death that their actions have caused and the danger that lies ahead, you persist in relentlessly fueling the flames of violence and chaos.

It has been revealed that at least one member of your staff attended the murderous riot at the Capitol on Wednesday, January 6th, along with her husband, the Chair of the Fifth District Republican Party. The same staffer has a long history of publicly expressing racist and transphobic views. You have refused to fire that staffer, even as we learn new details of how dangerous the January 6 event was to the rule of law and to our democracy itself. You have abused your constituents’ trust by using our tax dollars to pay the salary of someone who voluntarily attended, and presumably supported, a domestic terror event.

We, your constituents, believe that you have repeatedly betrayed your country and violated your oath of office with these actions. We do not trust you to uphold the Constitution. Therefore we, the undersigned, demand your immediate resignation.

Sincerely,
