Refusal to certify election results / support for insurgents
Before the terrorist attack on the US Capitol building on January 6, 2021, Hice urged his supporters to “FIGHT!” and tweeted “This is our 1776 moment.” He then voted against certifying the 2020 election results due to false rumors of election fraud.
The ACC Democratic party has called for Hice’s removal from office, saying that he has “violated his oath of office.” ACC Commissioners Melissa Link and Mariah Parker have also called for his removal.
