Rep. Pete Sessions represents Texas’s 17th congressional district.

Days before the insurrection on our Capitol, Rep. Sessions tweeted about meeting with supporters of the Stop the Steal movement. Writing: “I encouraged them to keep fighting and assured them I look forward to doing MY duty on January 6th.” Rep. Sessions also objected to the counting of the electoral votes, an effort meant to overturn the votes of millions of Americans.

Rep. Sessions sought to undermine our democracy and failed, he got an F.
