Fmr GOP Rep. Riggleman Says His Mom Texted Him "I'm Sorry You Were Ever Elected" After He Criticized Trump

Former Virginia GOP lawmaker and House Jan 6 committee aide Denver Riggleman reveals in his forthcoming book that he is an embarrassment to his own family, The Hill reports.

From The Hill:
Riggleman marketed his book as a behind-the-scenes look at the Jan. 6 investigation. A copy obtained by The Hill in advance of its Tuesday release reveals details on Riggleman's relationship with his mother as he publicly raised concerns about former President Trump and right-wing conspiracy theories.

"What will it take to wake you up son….I love you so, but cannot stand by and listen to your elitist attitude and being praised by elitist journalist and democrats," Riggleman's mother texted him.

Congratulations, she said. "You are now part of the swamp…I'm sorry you were ever elected…You are officially a politician…I have cried over you and my heart is broken by you."

Riggleman wrote that the text came after CNN's Jake Tapper interviewed him on Oct. 14, 2020, nearly two weeks after the Virginia Republican sponsored a resolution condemning QAnon that passed the House with 17 Republican "no" votes.

Riggleman's book, which is titled "The Breach," has reportedly drawn the ire of his former colleagues on the House Jan. 6 investigation, who do not want information to leak out about the committee's work.

Beyond his work on the panel, Riggleman's book goes on to detail a number of disgruntled messages between him and his mother.

"I knew my mom and I were not on the same page politically, but this is something else," Riggleman wrote. "Any hope for a mostly normal relationship seemed dim. She was damn near disavowing me."
Why would he even publish this? What a remarkable self-own.

I'd rather read his based mom's texts than his crappy book.
