Statement on Delegate David LaRock

Contact: Lissa Savaglio, (571) 278-7159, chair@loudoundemocrats.org

The Loudoun County Democratic Committee, the Clarke County Democratic Committee and the
Winchester-Frederick County Democratic Committee call for the immediate resignation of the
representative of 33rd House District, Delegate David LaRock. We do not make this call lightly.
However, with the statements and actions that Delegate David LaRock has made leading up to
and during the seditious insurrection that unfolded within the halls of the Capitol, Delegate David
LaRock’s immediate resignation from his legislative seat is both appropriate, urgent, and
necessary.

Leading up to the violent mob that surged inside the U.S. Capitol vandalizing, desecrating and
attempting to hold members of congress hostage, Delegate David LaRock used the influence of
his office to spread false claims about widespread voter fraud and to incite and encourage
sedition. Delegate David LaRock went as far as to call for the joint session of congress to not
certify the election results, which had already been certified by the state of Virginia pursuant to
the law. Additionally, Delegate David LaRock was outside the Capitol building among the mob
and continued to promote false claims on his social media platforms during the event.

Delegate David LaRock has not only abused the trust that constituents have in their elected
representatives by continuously spreading false claims and trying to stop the constitutional
duties of the joint session but has also been complicit in the violence that ensued on January
6th, 2021. This is a direct dereliction of his duties under the law and has put not only his
constituents but all of the country in danger.
