Del. Dave LaRock needs to resign or be removed!
Del. Dave LaRock needs to resign or be removed by Virginia House of Delegates
Why is this important?
On January 5th, 2021, Delegate LaRock sent Vice President Pence a letter on formal House of Delegate letterhead, asking for nullification of Virginia's electoral votes. Repeating the lies of electoral fraud, which we know there was none, LaRock attempted to disenfranchise millions of voters in VA simply because he didn't like the outcome. To be clear, high Black voter turnout is NOT voter fraud. By LaRock's own admission he has no proof to offer of electoral fraud (because there is none), this is a dangerous precedent LaRock is trying to set while also hoping to score political points as this is an election year for the House of Delegates.
On January 6th, 2021, the day our US Capitol was attacked by domestic terrorists, LaRock voiced his support once again for overturning a free and fair election because as he says "he stands loyal to the President". He participated in the protest, called for his supporters to participate as well and when Trump supporters committed acts of sedition, LaRock attempted to spread more disinformation by blaming the left and antifa instead of where the blame belongs, with Donald Trump and his enablers like Delegate LaRock. This type of disinformation campaign is dangerous to our democracy and a thinly veiled attempt to silence the votes of Black voters.
LaRock has faced numerous calls for his resignation including from the Loudon NAACP. In response to the calls for him to resign, LaRock sent a fundraising email in which he wrote:
"Rather than focusing on the business of Loudoun County and the needs of the colored community, they are wasting their time and taxpayer resources to attack me.”
Words have power, and we should all have the expectation that our elected officials would choose theirs wisely and responsibly. Due to the harmful and overtly racist actions and words, we must all demand the resignation of Delegate Dave LaRock. Should he refuse to resign, we must then demand that he be removed from the House of Delegates.
