The U.S. Capitol Police Labor Union voted 92% against Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman in vote of confidence in her leadership Monday.

The vote was conducted after the union's executive board called for the ballot to consider the issue to express no confidence in the force's leadership during the Jan. 6 breach at the Capitol.

"We hope congressional leaders and the entire Capitol Hill community understands that continuing with the current USCP leadership is not an option," union Chairman Gus Papathanasiou said in a statement quoted by Fox News.

"The current leadership is just a continuation of the past regimes on this department and there needs to be accountability. Their failures are inexcusable. This vote, which the majority of the officers in the bargaining unit participated in, shows they have lost our trust. The anger in this department is widespread and the trust that has been broken it is not going to be regained."

Pittman assumed command Jan. 8, two days after the breach.

Others leadership members also were subject to the vote, including Capt. Ben Smith, Assistant Chief Chad Thomas, acting Assistant Chief Sean Gallagher, Deputy Chief Timothy Bowen, Deputy Chief Jeffrey Pickett, and Deputy Chief Eric Waldow.
