Gov. Tom Wolf released a statement Wednesday evening condemning the violent riots in the nation’s Capitol and lambasting Pennsylvania Republicans for “perpetuating a deliberate disinformation campaign following the 2020 General Election.
“Today, President Trump’s supporters attempted a coup. This was the direct result of a deliberate disinformation campaign by Republicans from the President down to legislators in Pennsylvania. They lied about the results of the election. They lied about voter fraud. They lied about my administration and other governors. They lied about the administration of the election here in Pennsylvania and across the country. On November 3, we had a remarkably well-run election despite historic challenges.
