RE: Representative Mark Finchem
Regardless that Representative Mark Finchem (R-LD11) does not directly represent Arizona Legislative District Nine, his recent actions in the Arizona House of Representatives directly impact our district, our state and our country.
Finchem’s organizing and enabling activities and direct participation in the January 6th attempt to overthrow the government of the United States was an act of insurrection. His tweets of encouragement to the insurrectionists helped to perpetrate a violent attempt to overthrow the government of the United States of America.
We fully concur with Legislative District 11 Democrats in their declaration that LD11 Representative Mark Finchem has unequivocally disqualified himself from serving as a state or federal official. Finchem’s betrayal of his oath of office cannot stand.
We fully support LD11 Democrats in their request to strip Rep. Finchem of all Arizona State House leadership and committee positions, effective immediately.
Legislative District 9 Democrats are proud to stand in solidarity behind the recall effort of Representative Mark Finchem.
