News & Media

INDIANAPOLIS — State Representative Mike Andrade (D-Munster) today released the following statement against the attack of a pro-Trump mob on the U.S. Capitol yesterday:

“Today, the very heart of our democracy came under attack by violent rioters fueled by the divisive rhetoric of our president and his allies,” Andrade said.

“I understand with any election brings frustration and disappointment, but it is important we do not give into our darkest temptations to cause violence and destruction. What happened yesterday afternoon in our nation’s capital is not democracy and does not represent our values or ideals we hold so dear as Americans.”
