Today, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) introduced a resolution to censure Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43) for her recent comments inciting violence in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. What should have been a straightforward vote to hold Rep. Waters accountable for her actions turned into yet another partisan display by House Democrats, who decided to stand on the side of violence instead of the law.
“Speaker Pelosi, and every other House Democrat, had the opportunity to condemn the violent rhetoric of our colleague Representative Waters, a chairwoman and senior member of Congress, to protestors to ‘get more confrontational.’ Instead, they condoned it. And the House and our justice system are worse off because of it.”
