Rob Sand, Iowa Auditor

DES MOINES – Iowa Auditor Rob Sand responded to Wednesday’s insurrection in the nation’s capitol and fears a danger of spreading violence in near future.

Statement from State Auditor Sand on Yesterday’s Events:

There is a very real danger that the insurrection and violence at United States Capitol escalates in the coming days and weeks.

That danger is increased each time a leader repeats or implies the lie that the presidential election was rigged or defrauded. As George W. Bush put it, these Trump extremists at the Capitol are people whose “passions have been inflamed by falsehoods and false hopes.”

I regularly defend Iowa‘s senior Republican politicians from claims that they should be locked up, that they are criminals, and from other unfair personal attacks. I do so because falsehoods and false hopes can only be snuffed by people from the same political “half” of our sadly divided society.

This is the most urgent moment for Republican elected officials to do the same.

When President Trump claims the election was rigged, they must snuff the passion he intends to inflame by stating unequivocally and clearly that Joe Biden is the legitimate winner of the election and that he should be rightly inaugurated on January 20.

    As long as the 2nd amendment is around, people who are not prepared have only themselves to blame.

    Sickens me that now, with the biggest event ever with the least destruction, the msm are saying all these terrible things. Yet the left destroyed and rioted all year. Crickets from msm.

    The Constitution set aside a statement that if our government became too large and tyrannical then the people have the power to take it back by force if necessary.

    Typical Democrat. Fearmongering filth. Having insurrections and violence all over the US, most of the summer, while catering to a domestic terrorist group, was called peaceful protesting and the Democrats were fine with it. That is until it got close to their neighborhoods.

    Conservatives could have just stood there holding signs, they would have been attacked by frothy mouthed soy spewing Democrats that were paid to start trouble. Then the Conservatives would be blamed for “rioting”.

    NOTE:::: THE WORD COULD second word in above paragraph. Notice how it is used.

      Remember, big mouth, that you’ll be facing the military if you “declare war”. Smart asses with no brains don’t have the ability to think about the consequences of their words and actions.
