The Virginia Legislative Black Caucus Strongly Supports the Action in the Virginia Senate to Censure Senator Amanda Chase for Fomenting Insurrection Against the United States
Richmond, VA—Tonight Senator Amanda Chase (R-11th, Chesterfield), who often expresses white nationalist talking points, communicated senseless plans to file a resolution to censure Senate President Pro Tempore L. Louise Lucas (D-18th, Portsmouth)—who is the first Black person and woman to serve in this role. This baseless talking point by Senator Amanda Chase is clearly a distraction from Senator Chase’s participation in fomenting the violent insurrection against the United States on January 6, 2021.
Therefore, the Members of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus (VLBC) strongly support the Members of the Virginia Senate as they move forward with the resolution to censure Senator Amanda Chase for her role in fomenting violent insurrection against our democracy.
