Rep. Michelle Fischbach, R-Minn., spent the past year telling us she was an ally of President Trump. She blanketed the airwaves and spread lies about Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., because she knew she couldn't win on her own. Instead of campaigning on the issues or making a constructive case for her own candidacy, she chose to tie herself to the president and blindly support him.

And look where that support led. Just before rioters stormed and vandalized the United State's Capitol, she came out against certifying President-elect Biden's Electoral College victory. She committed herself to the flagrant lies about the past election and encouraged the domestic terrorists that overran the seat of our government.

Rep. Fischbach, you are unfit to serve in the House of Representatives. If you do not atone and resign your seat I only hope the legislature draws you out of your seat in 2022.
