LINK 57 GOP State And Local Officials Were At The Capitol Insurrection | HuffPost

At least 57 state and local Republican officials attended the Jan. 6 rally in Washington that turned into a deadly insurrection, according to an updated HuffPost tally. Almost all of them are resisting calls to resign.

They traveled from 27 states for the “Stop the Steal” demonstration near the White House. A couple of officials even gave speeches, warming up the crowd for then-President Donald Trump, who took the stage and regurgitated lies about the election results before instructing the “Make America Great Again” mob to march on the U.S. Capitol.

Late last month, after identifying an initial 21 state and local GOP officials at the rally — among them a QAnon conspiracy theorist, a self-described member of a far-right militia and a man who once declared that “the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat” — HuffPost received emails from readers across the country identifying the additional 36 officials in this new tally.

No surprise there. I doubt they will suffer any political consequences for their participation with their state parties or even in their next election. In fact, in red voting areas, it may even help.

Hell, the way the State GOPs are reacting to the seven that voted for impeachment, they probably handed out medals to the ones that led the crowd.


There were many more who were behind it.
