Michigan Democrats call on Republican lawmakers who objected to election results to resign
DETROIT – On Tuesday, the Michigan Democratic Party announced it wants the three Republican representatives from Michigan who objected to the election results to resign. Republicans Lisa McClain, Tim Walberg and Jack Bergman all objected last Wednesday after rioters stormed the US Capitol. The call Tuesday for those resignations also comes as there is growing pressure in Washington and Lansing for lawmakers to be held accountable for furthering false election claims. “Walberg, McClain and Bergman’s actions have been nothing short of an attack on our democracy, a betrayal of those who they represent,” wrote MDP Party Chair Lavora Barnes. The next big thing we will be watching is how these members vote on impeachment Wednesday morning.
