Derrick Evans Resigns From West Virginia House After Being Charged For His Role In U.S. Capitol Insurrection

Derrick Evans, recently elected to WV state House, participated in the US Capitol insurrection.  He filmed himself inside and posted it to his facebook.



A spokesperson for the office of House Speaker Roger Hanshaw also provided a statement from Evans that accompanied the letter.

“The past few days have certainly been a difficult time for my family, colleagues and myself, so I feel it’s best at this point to resign my seat in the House and focus on my personal situation and those I love.”

“I take full responsibility for my actions, and deeply regret any hurt, pain or embarrassment I may have caused my family, friends, constituents and fellow West Virginians. I hope this action I take today can remove any cloud of distraction from the state Legislature, so my colleagues can get to work in earnest building a brighter future for our state. And more importantly, I hope it helps to begin the healing process, so we can all move forward and come together as ‘One Nation, Under God.’”
