One Day After Violent Riots at US Capitol, NM GOP and State Rep. Brown Continue to Fan the Flames

State Rep. Brown Announces Plan to “Decertify” NM Results

Just one day after rioters broke into the United States Capitol in an attempt to undermine a legitimate democratic and constitutional process, New Mexico Republicans are eagerly promoting the misinformation and scare tactics that led to this violence. 

State Representative Cathrynn Brown announced that she would put forward a bill in the 2021 Legislative Session to “decertify” New Mexico’s electoral votes. The New Mexico GOP quickly supported this move in a release that continued to spread the same baseless claims that led a mob to attack our nation’s capitol less than 24 hours ago. 

“Yesterday’s events did not take place in a vacuum, and every politician that takes part in baseless fear mongering about the 2020 election should be held accountable for their role in undermining our democracy,” said DPNM Chair Marg Elliston. “Even as Republicans across the country see the danger of this cynical misinformation campaign and accept the results of the 2020 election, the New Mexico GOP continues to parrot Donald Trump. These desperate attempts to ignore the results of a legitimate election are not only foolish – they’re dangerous.”
