Lancaster, PA: At its annual meeting this past weekend, the Lancaster County Democratic Committee (LCDC) announced the adoption of a Resolution Against Sedition by its members. The resolution calls for the resignation of U.S. Representative Lloyd Smucker for his objection to Pennsylvania's Electoral College results after the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol took place, as well as an investigation by the PA Attorney General into PA Senator Douglas Mastriano's misuse of public funds for partisan purposes.
"It is unthinkable that our representatives, including our own Rep. Smucker, would advocate for throwing out the votes of millions of their fellow Pennsylvanians" said Diane Topakian, Chair of the Lancaster County Democratic Committee. "After dozens of failed court cases which presented zero evidence of voter fraud, irresponsible politicians like Smucker continue to spread unfounded claims that the 2020 election was stolen. These lies have cost people their lives."
Additionally, the resolution names the members of the PA State Senate and the PA House of Representatives who signed amicus briefs in support of the baseless Texas v Pennsylvania, et al submitted to, and later rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court. These briefs were signed by a number of representatives from Lancaster County.
