ELKHART — The Indiana chapter of Common Cause, a non-partisan organization for fair and open elections, on Friday called for the resignation of multiple lawmakers, including U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski, R-Ind.

“In the wake of Wednesday’s insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, Common Cause Indiana is calling for U.S. Representatives Jim Baird, Jim Banks, Greg Pence, and Jackie Walorski to immediately resign after they voted to overturn the will of people, failed to accept the results of the 2020 presidential election, and played a clear role in spreading disinformation around the election, leading to the violence,” the organization said in a press release.

They need to resign or be impeached. Marching with traitors and insurrectionist makes you one. I blame them for their rhetoric and actions.... These were not protesters, these were traitors, terrorist, and insurrectionist. So much for law and order....All while waving the trump flag and confederate flag...there is your republicans party...there is your trump supporters....the 25th needs to be enacted or impeachment must begin. Hate to say it...but we told you so....

You should listen to both sides of the news. There were SOME troublemakers and plenty of peaceful protesters exercising their right to do so. You only ever see one side of the coin. Open your mind. Also, get your facts straight. There is no basis for the 25th amendment or impeachment. Just more waste of time and tax dollars. Everyone needs to move on. Our new "president" could have been doing a lot to squelch all of this by acknowledging people need to feel their concerns were listened to instead of standing by while the mainstream media hawked the opinion of "baseless claims".

Well said, 75 million people voted for Trump and his policies. He got the highest vote total by far of any president running for a second term.

Not true. the 25th would be better than impeachment #2...and he should have done us all a favor and resign....but if trump actually believes and convinced himself that he won the election and believes all the lies he has told his cult followers..then he IS delusional and NOT of a sound mind. Impeachment #2, check....he will go down in history as the worst president EVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!
