‘An indelible stain on our democracy’ — Rep. Davids describes barricading herself in office as mob attacked U.S. Capitol

"It was one of the darkest days of modern American history," Rep. Sharice Davids told the Shawnee Mission Post Thursday. "And President Trump not only condoned it but encouraged it. He has demonstrated previously he’s not a good fit, but yesterday what we saw is someone who is wholly unfit to hold any public office." File photo.

Rep. Sharice Davids of Kansas says she rode out Wednesday’s mob attack on the U.S. Capitol in her underground office.

The two-term Democrat, who represents Johnson County in Congress, says she was not on the House floor when a crowd of pro-Trump extremists — egged on by the president at a nearby rally earlier Wednesday — stormed the Capitol complex in Washington, D.C.
