Lawmakers who voted against Biden are denounced back home
Republican members of Congress who voted against certifying Joe Biden’s presidential victory, even after a mob broke into the Capitol, are getting blasted by critics in their home districts.
Protesters, newspaper editorial boards and local-level Democrats are demanding that they resign or be ousted by their congressional colleagues.
The House and Senate can remove members with a two-thirds vote or censure or reprimand with a majority. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders have been quiet about whether lawmakers who backed the untrue claims of voter fraud that led to the riot should be punished.
