Denver Riggleman, R-Va., University students’ representative in the House, has done nothing but harm the interests and welfare of his constituents. He voted against the Equality Act, which would enshrine LGBTQ rights in federal anti-discrimination law. He voted against reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act, which works in mutliple ways to support and protect survivors of harassment and assault. He voted against improving the abysmal living conditions for undocumented migrants in border patrol custody. And most recently, he has chosen to ignore the incriminating evidence mounting against President Donald Trump and has decided instead to denounce the House’s legitimate impeachment inquiry as a political stunt.
