Sanction Mike Garcia for Inciting Insurrectionist Violence

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!


Republican Rep. Mike Garcia (CA-25) should be sanctioned by the U.S. House of Representatives for fomenting lies that led to the violence that occurred on January 6, 2021.  By promoting a false narrative that the 2020 election was fraudulent, he enabled and emboldened insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol, an invasion during which the Confederate flag was raised on Capitol Hill for the first time in our history. 

Some Republicans in Congress reversed their previous intention to object to certifying the election and instead condemned the insurgents who attempted to occupy our federal legislature. However, our congressman was undeterred by the behavior of these violent insurgents, and he carried out his previously-stated intention to stand by the President’s dangerous rhetoric by voting in favor of the objection to the electoral college certification. 

As constituents, we are outraged that Rep. Garcia proceeded to vote in favor of the objection despite the violence he and his fellow colleagues witnessed on January 6. Garcia’s actions, statements, and behavior are threats to our democracy and our country’s people.

We, the undersigned constituents of the 25th Congressional District of California, UNITE to call on Speaker Pelosi and the House of Representatives to support Rep. Cori Bush’s House resolution so that Rep. Mike Garcia will be investigated and SANCTIONED.

Rep. Cori Bush has introduced a House resolution directing the Committee on House Administration and the Committee on Ethics to investigate whether Republican members of congress who sought to overturn the 2020 Presidential election have violated their oath of office to uphold the Constitution and whether they should therefore face sanction, including removal from the House of Representatives.  

Those who have incited this domestic terror attack through their attempts to overturn the election must face consequences. This includes Rep. Mike Garcia. He has broken his Oath of Office, and he must face sanctions for it.
