Sign Our Petition Calling for Representative Bob Gibbs’ Resignation

Bob Gibbs has recently proven he is not qualified to represent Ohio’s 7th District in the U.S. House of Representatives. A group of the 7th District’s citizens are calling for his resignation. We believe unity is not possible without accountability, and Rep. Gibbs needs to own his part in last week’s insurrection. We hope you’ll join us. You can sign the petition here.

On January 4, 2021, Mr. Gibbs announced his intention to vote against the acceptance of Electoral College votes from certain other states during the congressional certification process. Mr. Gibbs said — with absolutely no evidence and despite more than 60 lost court cases — that “I believe state judiciaries and state executive offices overstepped their authority in a handful of states.”

In refusing to acknowledge the real winner of the election, Mr. Gibbs threw more fuel on the fire started by President Trump’s lies about a fraudulent election, riling up their base of QAnon and radical far right groups who attacked the Capitol on January 6. Not only that, Mr. Gibbs actually voted to object to the certification of votes from Pennsylvania and Arizona following that terrorist attack. He voted as such, even as he knew that President Trump had incited that insurrection through his continual lies about stolen and “rigged” elections.

As a member of the House of Representatives, Mr. Gibbs swore an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Mr Gibbs has violated the 14th Amendment, the one that prohibits anyone who “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the United States, “or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof,” from serving in Congress.
