A memorial placard for the late Congressman John Lewis was ruined in the riots at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, according to Maryland Rep. Steny Hoyer.

Hoyer, the House Majority Leader, tweeted photos of the placard outside his office and wrote:

“While rioters shamefully destroyed this tribute to my brother John Lewis yesterday, let his words continue to echo in the halls of Congress and in our hearts. Let us always stand up, speak up, and speak out against injustice and for our democracy.”
