A newly-elected black Republican House representative is firing back after he was told this week to “resign in disgrace” after he objected to the election results in a number of states Wednesday during congressional certification of the election results.
Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida stood with dozens of other lawmakers in questioning the results from a number of key battleground states. The Republican was vocal on his Twitter page with regard to his intent to object to certification, prior to the Capitol incursion.
“The people of Florida’s 19 Congressional District elected me to honor the Constitution and the Rule of Law. That is why I just officially signed the objection to the electoral college certification—our election laws matter,”
