Fedor Demands Accountability for Ohio School Board Member Involved in "Stop The Steal" Rally
January 12, 2021
Today, state Senator Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) released the following statement following reports that Ohio School Board Member Kirsten Hill organized a bus trip to Washington, D.C. to participate in the deadly pro-Trump insurrection at the U. S. Capitol.
“It was disturbing to learn that a duly elected official, who is responsible for the education of 1.7 million children, was challenging the results of a legitimate election. I question the judgement of someone who believes this election was stolen after no evidence was presented. Her actions undermine our democracy.
“Ms. Hill must explain why she planned this trip and what the goal was, if not insurrection. Further, she must denounce the actions of the insurgents who attacked our democracy, breached our Capitol building, and led to the death of five individuals. Everyone involved must be held accountable.”
