Well, so much for the crazy theory that there are any “moderate” Democrats in the House who would actually choose upholding their oath to defend the Constitution over protecting a fellow party member. Tuesday, the House voted on party lines 216-212 to table GOP leader Kevin McCarthy’s resolution to censure Rep. Maxine Waters for her attempted jury intimidation by urging mob action if there wasn’t a guilty verdict for Derek Chauvin.
Voters in swing districts, please remember this when the next election rolls around and your “moderate” Democratic Representative gives you a big load of banana oil about how he/she puts principle ahead of partisanship. Recall this is the same House that voted to impeach President Trump for inciting insurrection for asking his supporters to protest peacefully and patriotically, but who circled the wagons to protect Mad Maxine’s blatantly violent rhetoric.
Waters took her escape from even the least accountability with her typical hubris and lack of self-reflection, calling her critics racists and declaring, "They don’t seem to understand, they’re not going to get me out of office, because I’m here until I decide to retire."
Voters in her own district should also note just how little regard she seems to have for their opinion of her as well. Silly voters, you thought you had some say over how long she was going to be in office!
