MADISON – Today, protestors stormed the U.S. Capitol in opposition to the U.S. Congress meeting to certify the Electoral College votes. Representative Robyn Vining (D-Wauwatosa) issued the following statement in response:

“Democracy will prevail.

“Today’s violence at the United States Capitol is an attack on our democracy, but our democracy will prevail. I condemn the violence in all forms, including dangerous rhetoric escalating toward violence. It has been, and remains, the job of elected officials to behave in ways that perpetuate, not hinder, democracy, and we need leaders on all sides of the aisle to join together right now in one voice.

“We can have confidence in the election. It was free, fair, and transparent. Voters – not political parties, candidates, or legislative committees, or armed protestors storming government buildings – decide our elections. No evidence has been provided that would suggest that the election results are fraudulent. And this armed insurrection should be condemned at every level, from every elected official, of every political party.

“We the People, of the United States of America, are united by a shared future. We are committed to a peaceful transition of power.

“Democracy will prevail.”

Rep. Vining represents the 14th Assembly District, which includes parts of Brookfield, Wauwatosa, and Milwaukee. For more information, visit Rep. Vining’s website here.
