Arizona Republican Lawmakers Linked to Jan 6th Insurrection File Ethics Complaint Against Democrats for Speaking Out on Abortion Ban

Statement from Living United for Change in Arizona's Executive Director, Alejandra Gomez



April 25, 2024


PHOENIX – Republican Lawmakers in the Arizona House of Representatives have filed an ethics complaint against Representatives Analise Ortiz and Oscar De Los Santos for voicing their opposition to the Abortion Ban Law during a debate on the House floor, accusing Democratic lawmakers of “inciting a riot.” This sham complaint is coming from the same Republican caucus whose members publicly voiced their support, and have members who are directly linked, and were even present during the Jan. 6 insurrection that attempted to overthrow our Democracy. 


Alejandra Gomez Executive Director of LUCHA said, “Utilizing your First Amendment right to speak out against a Civil War era abortion ban is democracy in action. This baseless complaint from Arizona Republicans is full of irony, as they themselves have ties to the January 6th insurrection. This is nothing but a desperate attempt to silence dissent and a waste of time and resources. This is a Republican party that is becoming more and more comfortable with the idea of ditching democracy altogether to cling to power. We applaud the boisterous opposition of Democratic Lawmakers like Analise Ortiz and Oscar De Los Santos, who are fearless and unapologetic in service of their constituents and the state of Arizona.”
