Statement from House Republican Leader J.T. Wilcox and Senate Republican Leader John Braun on threat to Washington state election official

House Republican Leader J.T. Wilcox and Senate Republican Leader John Braun released the following statement Monday.

“We have recently seen shocking evidence of a threat to a Washington state election official – including a picture, home address and personal contact information – on a national website. The harassment and threats to state election officials must stop. We categorically denounce these actions and any threats of political violence.

“We continue to have confidence in the 2020 election results in our state and the work of Secretary of State Kim Wyman and her staff over the last several years. As always, we believe all credible allegations of election fraud – no matter how small or large – need to be brought forward and investigated. And anyone who breaks the law should be held accountable for their actions.”
