Representative Morgan Griffith (VA-09)

Taking this action today will not undermine our beleaguered institutions, as some critics charge, but rather reinforce and defend them. Our support of objections will not diminish the value of the vote of any individual citizen, but rather protect that value, by ensuring the Constitution is followed and by restoring the confidence of all Americans that the rule of law will be upheld today, and our elections in the future will remain secured. ” [Source: US House Website] [Source: The Roanoke Times, 1/6/21]
  • Morgan Griffith thinks that his oath to defend the Constitution includes encouraging insurrectionists based on lies made by a bitter outgoing president unwilling to accept our democratic process.
