Republican West Virginia lawmaker won’t resign after storming US Capitol

Derrick Evans, a Republican member of the West Virginia House of Delegates, says he won’t resign after participating in the Capitol storming on Wednesday. Evans’ lawyer says Evans broke no laws. Evans is seen on video inside the Capitol, which shows him shouting at others they shouldn’t vandalise the Capitol. Democrats called on him to resign.

All Americans get to protest. If he rioted, fine. Otherwise, don't tread on his rights. Yeah him joining the protest was in bad taste. If he didn't overtly break a law, tough.

These calls for resignations are always nonsense. His constituents will decide whether they want him to keep his job in the next election.

Joining a peaceful march is one thing, but when those individuals turned into rioters and broke into a Federal building on Federal property his position as a government representative, even though from another State, his Oath of Office should have kicked in and told him it was legally and morally wrong to continue with what he was doing. I believe he should be removed from the governmental office he presently holds and held accountable for his actions on January 6th. Every single person who participated in breaking into the Capitol are no longer law abiding citizens, lack moral character, and are telling their friends, family, and the rest of the Country "look at me, I can do whatever I want, I am above the law, it means nothing to me." Are you really proud of these fellow citizens? If you answer yes, please search your soul and give a meaningful answer to yourself.

HaHa! Why should he resign? He didn't do anything illegal. He was protesting, he had a legal right to be there, he committed no crime. Absolutely no reason for him to resign.

In his defense, what choice does the guy have? It's not like he's gonna just haul off and get a REAL job after that shit show he pulled.

If he wasn't with a mob and force his way in to the Capital, skipping security and metal detectors... would that be criminal? Does doing all of those things with a mob who killed a cop make it more, or less, criminal?

Remember the hoopla when the mayor (I think of Portland) joined the rioters there before he got ousted by them? Who on the left said anything about that? (Other than calling him a fool for doing it). Anyone should be able to enter "the people's" government buildings, there should be no closures, ever... at most just volume and throughput metering/monitoring.
