SACRAMENTO — Assemblymember Tasha Boerner Horvath issued the following statement in Support of Assembly House Resolution 7 (H.R. 7), which passed today out of the State Assembly with 51 votes:
“The strength of our Republic rests in respecting our democratic institutions, and our ability to respond to the challenges we face, including COVID, require that we have a functioning and stable government. Well before November of last year, our current President did everything he could to undermine public faith in those institutions, including that most essential element for democracy to survive — the vote.
Instead of accepting the will of the people and the rule of law, President Trump incited his followers, calling on them to march on the Capitol Building when Congress was meeting to certify the election. The disturbing and unprecedented attack that occurred is a direct result.
