The Bucks County Republican Committee voted to remove Dawn Bancroft from her elected position as committeewoman for Doylestown Borough on Sept. 8 for her role in the Jan. 6 insurrection.

Bancroft, along with her friend, Diana Santos-Smith of Upper Black Eddy, recorded themselves after entering the Capitol.

“We broke into the Capitol … We got inside, we did our part. … We were looking for Nancy to shoot her in the friggin’ brain but we didn’t find her,” said Bancroft.

Both women were subsequently arrested.

Prosecutors detailed the activity of Bancroft saying she “twice unlawfully entered into and remained inside of the Capitol via the Senate Wing Door breach point.”  

Bancroft entered a guilty plea for a federal misdemeanor charge and was sentenced to two months of incarceration followed by three years of probation for her involvement in the January 6 attack on the Capitol.

Republican Chairwoman Pat Poprik, who signed on to a fake slate of electors in an attempt to keep former President Trump in office, said the following about Bancroft:

“Our Executive Committee agreed, and have taken the appropriate action to remove her from her role as Committeewoman,” she said. “This is not an action that was taken lightly, but was clearly necessary given the circumstances.”

An ethics complaint citing Section 3 of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution was recently filed against Republican Congressman Scott Perry for his alleged participation in coordinating the events of January 6.

The law serves to disqualify from elected office individuals who violate their oath to uphold the Constitution by participating in seditious conduct.
