RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Chesterfield state Senator Amanda Chase is facing a possible censure in the Senate following her involvement in last week’s rally-turned-insurrection at the United States Capitol.

A handful of Democrats signed a resolution accusing her of “fomenting insurrection.”

There have been growing calls for Chase to resign following the violence.

Chase says she left DC before the riots broke out.
