We are once again putting up this billboard near Ron Johnson to remind folks of his inexcusable role in questioning the results of our election
and the deadly riot that resulted.
Ron Johnson spent the last four years working for Donald Trump instead of the people of Wisconsin. He spent all of 2020 downplaying COVID-19, spreading false science, and voting against helping tens of millions of Americans.
When Donald Trump lost the November election, Ron Johnson went from bad to worse, aiming his treachery at our democratic process.
First, Ron Johnson tried to overthrow the results of the presidential election. When that didn’t work, he went to work trying to overthrow the US government.
No one did more to inspire the right-wing terrorist insurrection that stormed the Capitol on January 6th than Ron Johnson. His rhetoric about conspiracy theories and stolen votes, taken from QAnon and other fringe actors, directly fomented the rage that left five people dead, dozens injured and democracy under siege.
Instead of learning from this deadly event, Ron Johnson devoted his entire winter to further spreading lies about the election and even the insurrection itself. He has no shame. His loyalty is to Donald Trump, not democracy.
“As he did before the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, Johnson continues to use his Senate seat as a platform for spreading lies, peddling conspiracy theories, inciting anti-government extremists and undermining governance...Hawley and Cruz were the highest profile members of the Senate sedition caucus. But Johnson was, and is, the steadiest proponent of the lies and conspiracy theories that animated the fascist mob that attacked the Capitol. Unlike Hawley and Cruz, Johnson went so far as to use the committee he chaired in the last Senate to amplify the unfounded charges of election fraud that were at the center of Trump’s call for overturning the election results...In the case of Johnson, the facts warrant expulsion. His lies, his abuses of his position and his threats to obstruct governing in order to thwart accountability for incitement of insurrection represent a rejection of his oath of office. He has no place in the United States Senate.”
And if he doesn’t leave before the 2022 election, Tom Nelson will defeat him at the ballot box.
Tom is a long-time champion for working people in Wisconsin, a former Assembly Majority Leader, and now the County Executive in Outagamie County. He’s a progressive who wins in a red region because he works hard, listens to everyone, and gets results that make people’s lives better, including helping to save a local paper mill. When Tom gets to Washington, he’s going to fight for unions, workers, family farmers, Medicare for All, and making sure we give a fair shake for people on Main Street, not Wall Street.
Kick in today to help keep this billboard up and remove Ron Johnson from office!! We’ll keep applying pressure through billboards, social media, op-eds and elsewhere. And ultimately, if he won’t resign, we’re going to beat him at the ballot box.
