U.S. Capitol Police officers have given an emphatic thumbs-down on the leader of the department installed after the Capitol incursion last month.
Former Chief Steven Sund, who was denounced by members of Congress and others after the incursion, resigned in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 riot. He was replaced by acting Chief Yogananda Pittman.
The U.S. Capitol Police Labor Committee, which represents Capitol Police officers, announced that 92 percent of those participating in a recent ballot voted that they had no confidence in Pittman, according to CBS News.
The vote also showed no confidence in other top leaders within the department, which is assigned to protect Capitol Hill and its environs, according to
