The U.S. Capitol Police Labor Union on Monday delivered an "overwhelming vote of No Confidence" on the senior leadership of the U.S. Capitol Police.
The vote comes after the Executive Board of the Capitol Police Union last week called for its members to consider a vote of no confidence following the senior leadership’s mishandling of the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riots.
The union said that 92% of its members voted no confidence in acting Chief Yogananda Pittman, who assumed the role two days after the riots. Union Chairman Gus Papathanasiou said there are leaders within the department that are better suited for leadership, Fox News reports.
"We hope Congressional leaders and the entire Capitol Hill community understands that continuing with the current USCP leadership is not an option," he said.
