MADISON, Wis.—Today, Opportunity Wisconsin released the following statement on the one year anniversary of the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Meghan Roh, Opportunity Wisconsin program director:
“Exactly a year ago today, Wisconsinites watched as rioters stormed the United States Capitol Building, which left multiple people dead, threatened the lives of our nation’s lawmakers, and put our democracy in jeopardy. While many of our representatives did the right thing and spoke out against the attack, Senator Ron Johnson spread misinformation like he often does, claiming it was largely a ‘peaceful protest’ and downplaying its impact. January 6 will forever be remembered as one of our nation’s darkest days and we will not forget the role Senator Ron Johnson played in the attempt to undermine the will of the people. We deserve a Senator who tells the truth, who fights for our democracy, and who will stand up against dangerous attacks on America.”
