Rep. Andy Harris represents Maryland’s 1st congressional district.

Rep. Harris was a House Republican that signed onto the failed Texas amicus brief that sought to change the results of the presidential election. He also was one of the objectors to the counting of electoral college votes, and continued his support of this effort after the Jan. 6 insurrection on our United States Capitol building.

Rep. Harris was focused on confusing his constituents about claims of voter fraud and voter irregularities. Instead of being a leader and telling his constituents the truth, that there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud and voter irregularities, he decided to support efforts that only made matters worse.

Rep. Harris did not attempt to hold President Trump accountable for his contributions to the Jan. 6 insurrection and did not vote for or against impeachment. He said the vote was “pointless.”

Rep. Harris did not vote in support of the bipartisan commission proposal to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection.

Rep. Harris gets an F for trying to undermine our democracy.
