To: Senator Ted Cruz

Sen. Cruz: Resign!

UPDATE: In the midst of the devastating climate crisis that's resulted in millions of Texans being forced to go without power and water during the worst extreme weather in a generation, Ted Cruz took off on a family vacation to Mexico. He's failed us again. It's long past time for him to resign.
--
Senator Ted Cruz must resign from office for his role in enabling the violent white supremacist insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

Why is this important?

On Wednesday, January 6, we witnessed an unprecedented assault on our democracy. A violent mob of white supremacists stormed the Capitol building, ransacking and vandalizing members’ offices and the very chambers of the Senate and the House. Five people, including one Capitol Police officer, died as a result.

The seeds for this violent assault were planted well before January 6. Senator Ted Cruz was among the loudest voices in the Senate calling for an overturning of the will of tens of millions of voters in November’s election in states like Arizona, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia.

Despite dozens of failed court challenges and no evidence of fraud whatsoever, Sen. Cruz repeatedly stated that the election results from states he doesn’t even represent were irregular and that they required further investigation.

He continued to peddle these blatant lies for his own political gain, even going so far as to send out a fundraising message while the siege of the Capitol was underway.

Sen. Cruz has blood on his hands. This was a political game where he put his future opportunity to run for president above the people of Texas. He has lost the right to represent Texans in the U.S. Senate.
He has to resign immediately.


Reasons for signing

  • The fact that the governor and others didn’t leave should’ve been enough for Cruz to question his decision of leaving. I’ve never taken a politicians decision so personal before. Please resign.
  • It was known years ago that the energy grid in Texas needed to be winterized. People are suffering. Ted Cruz has taken a trip to Cancun while the people of Texas are suffering and even dying. His callous disregard for the people of Texas is unacceptable. Leaders should be in Texas working to resolve these issues and weathering the storm in the trenches with the people the leaders serve. We need better leaders who care about all people.
  • Ted Cruz is a disgrace and does not deserve to represent me or anyone else in Texas.
