Indiana Republican Slammed For ‘Inciting Violence’ a Day After Trump’s Acquittal

Published

Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita, a Republican, is being dragged around social media after implying in a Valentine’s Day-themed tweet that 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump. Twitter responded by blocking replies, retweets and likes, saying the tweet may spur violence.

Rokita, one of Donald Trump’s most ardent defenders, published a meme on his personal account with floating red hearts and the text “You stole my heart like a 2020 election.” Below the text is a cartoon-like portrait of Donald Trump.

The social media giant slapped a banner at the bottom of the tweet saying that the meme contains a disputed claim of election fraud, and that it can’t be responded to “due to a risk of violence.”

Indiana Democrats responded to Rokita’s tweet Monday morning with their own. They described the state’s top lawyer as “one very, very sad individual.”

“It once again proves how the (Indiana GOP) would rather swear allegiance to one person rather than our nation and our values,” the tweet said.
Rokita in December urged the Supreme Court to hear a lawsuit Texas filed claiming that four states had unconstitutional election practices, claims that court ultimately rejected.
