Biography

Rep. Ken Calvert represents California’s 42nd congressional district.

After the January 6 insurrection, Rep. Calvert claimed that “we need a thorough investigation of those instances of alleged voter fraud or irregularities.” He also signed onto the Texas amicus brief presented to the Supreme Court that tried to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. The day after the insurrection on our Capitol, he said that he wants “a thorough investigation of those instances of alleged voter fraud or irregularities” after federal, state, and local agencies found no evidence of widespread voter fraud.

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

Because of his actions, Rep. Calvert has earned an F.
