Looney, Duff Statement Regarding Governor Lamont’s Address

Today, Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney and Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff released a statement regarding the chaos and violence in Washington, D.C.

“Today’s chaos and violence is due to President Trump’s reckless comments and his rejection of the clear and decisive election results.

Republicans everywhere should reject this violence, sedition, and subversion of American democracy.

To the American people who are going about their lives as treason and sedition are happening at the U.S. Capitol, stop what you are doing and pay attention. Be disgusted, appalled, and angry. We can never let this happen again. Our Democracy is fragile and freedom is not guaranteed.

Demand that all our elected officials reject today’s events and the hate and lies over the past 4 years that caused this to happen.”
