Rep. Gregory Murphy represents North Carolina’s 3rd district in the House.

With no basis for his claims, Rep. Murphy stated “the fact that executive officials and judges in several states usurped the legislative power to rewrite election law from thin air is at best troubling and at worst seditious.” When a mob stormed the Capitol because of these lies, he downplayed the events leading up to the attack by tweeting that “President Trump has committed to a peaceful transition of power.”
