Calling for Rep. Andy Harris’ resignation

The HCDCC is joining the other Democratic Central Committees in Maryland's First Congressional District to call on our leadership to pursue significant punitive action against Rep. Andy Harris, R-Md. His actions of disseminating misinformation concerning the 2020 Election, dangerously enabling an angry and armed mob and his verbal and alleged physical altercation have violated Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Read the Joint Letter

In his letter, Harford County Councilman Andre Johnson said he believes that Rep. Andy Harris violated his sworn oath of office by participating in attempts to undermine the free and fair election that legitimately selected Joe Biden to be the next United States President.
