Rep. Jake LaTurner represents Kansas’s 2nd district in the House.

After objecting to the certification of the Electoral College votes, Rep. LaTurner has made it clear he is not interested in defending democracy. He also made excuses for why he would not hold Trump accountable, saying in a statement that “Democrats are choosing to ram through a divisive impeachment while simultaneously mobilizing Big Tech to silence and demonize conservatives.”
