The Kentucky Democratic Party calls on Congressman Hal Rogers to resign after the electoral college’s objection
FRANKFORT, Ky. (WYMT) – Kentucky Democratic Party (KDP) officials released a statement Thursday morning calling for the resignation of Congressman Hal Rogers.
In the statement, spokeswoman Marisa McNee called Rogers’ voice to raise objections to the electoral college, which made several battlefield states “unthinkable”.
Congressman Rogers, who represents Kentucky’s 5th District, which covers most of eastern and southern Kentucky, released his own statement early Thursday morning.
In part it says, “I have received hundreds of calls and emails from people in southern and eastern Kentucky questioning the integrity of the presidential election in other states. Every American should be confident that every fair vote will be accurately counted. “
You can read the entire statement below.
We contacted Congressman Rogers’ office to see if they would like to respond directly to the KDP statement.
The Louisville Courier-Journal reports that Rogers was the only member of the Kentucky congressional delegation to vote against the confirmation of the election results on Wednesday. That session came hours after rioters who backed President Donald Trump broke through the Capitol and forced both chambers of Congress to enter pause amid a lockdown.
