COLUMBUS– State Rep. Juanita Brent (D-Cleveland) issued a statement on the one-year anniversary of the attack on the U.S. Capitol:

“January 6, 2021 began as a day of celebration to certify the electoral vote, but spiraled into an obstruction of democracy. This attempted coup casts a dark cloud over our country. The insurrection at the U.S. Capitol has stoked extremism and hyper-partisanship across the country, and Ohio is no exception to this alarming trend. This kind of violence cannot be tolerated. Those responsible must be held accountable, and we must vow to unite to uphold democracy.”
