Officials at Hamburg rally should be removed

A member of the United States House of Representatives  appeared and spoke at an event in Hamburg Sept. 26 that featured a hanged effigy of New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo. There is no doubt as to who was depicted. His presence thereby supported assassinating the governor. Chris Jacobs violated his oath of office. He is not fit to hold elective office. He should resign or be removed from office and should be removed from consideration for re-election, and should face whatever legal penalties follow from making such threats.
