Representatives Chris Jacobs (NY-27), Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11), Elise Stefanik (NY-21), and Lee Zeldin (NY-01) to resign for their complicity in Wednesday’s deadly insurrection on the US Capitol.
Representatives Lee Zeldin, Nicole Malliotakis, Elise Stefanik, and Chris Jacobs have violated their oath to the American people and have shamed and disgraced their home districts and New Yorkers as a whole. With their lawless acts to delegitimize our electoral process, attempting to undermine our democratic institutions, and public-facing objections to a duly elected President – and Vice President-Elect, we have seen firsthand how their actions and words have serious and deadly consequences. What happened on Wednesday was an absolutely disgrace and this all falls on the shoulders of any and all republicans who have aided Donald Trump’s actions over the past four years!
These Elected Officials do not represent New York and they do not deserve to hold any form of elected office. Join Chairman Jay Jacobs and me in signing this petition demanding their resignation.
Today, we have learned that the Republicans will choose not to act (shocking, right?) and that Congressional Democrats will once again have to step in and help save our great country. We applaud any and all congressional representatives (including Rep. Jones, Rep. Bowman, and Rep. AOC), who have drafted articles of impeachment for Donald Trump and expulsion for any of their colleagues who chose to be complacent with Trump’s actions.
Articles of Impeachment for introduction, so proud of everyone co-leading this effort with us.
We need to move quickly to remove this President from office. pic.twitter.com/vbZtA7g6fc

The New York State Young Democrats will choose to not sit idly by while our country is under siege by the radical right under the direction of a failed President. We will continue to flood the NYS Assembly, NYS Senate, and the Congressional chambers with young, dedicated, patriotic, and righteous democrats, who will serve and protect the constitution of the United States against all enemies both foreign and domestic.
