Anti-Trump Sen. Sasse has just been censured

One Republican U.S. Senator is facing a backlash in his home state.

According to Breitbart, the Republican Party of several Nebraska counties has censured Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE), and other counties could follow. 

Sasse is well-known for his opposition to former President Donald Trump. If you’re not familiar with him, here’s a recent tweet of his: “Personality cults aren’t conservative, conspiracy theories aren’t conservative, lying that an election has been stolen isn’t conservative, acting like politics is a religion isn’t conservative.”

Sasse is one of a handful of Senate Republicans who, twice now, has voted to support the continuance of the current impeachment of Trump.

The resolution

So far, censures against Sasse have been passed by the Republican Party of Lincoln, Hitchcock, Scotts Bluff, and Sarpy counties. The one that has received the most attention is the one that was unanimously passed by Lincoln County, although they all are reportedly similar.

In the Lincoln County resolution, Sasse is criticized for “dismissing the legitimate concerns” of fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

Sasse is also rebuked for making “statements inciting radical proposals and retributions against law-abiding elected senators,” namely Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Josh Hawley (R-MO), who both object on January 6th to the Electoral College votes.

And, lastly, Sasse is accused of “failure to respect the high office of the President of the United States.”

This resolution has been sent to other counties, and there is a possibility that they will censure Sasse as well.

A step in the right direction

Sasse is the second big-name Republican to be censured in recent weeks for supporting the second impeachment of Trump. The other individual is Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY).

A week ago, Cheney was censured by the Republican Party in Wyoming’s Carbon, Lincoln, Johnson, Crook, Sheridan, Sweetwater, Hot Springs, Washakie, Fremont, and Albany counties. These counties particularly took issue with Cheney for supporting impeachment. One resolution stated that in doing so Cheney “betrayed the trust” of her constituents.

These censures of Cheney and Sasse are certainly a step in the right direction, but, at the end of the day, they don’t amount to much. The real question will be whether voters hold these individuals and others responsible by voting them out of office in the next election.

  2. So glad to see these elected officials get a reminder of who put them in office and they should be voted out quickly. Their being elected to public office is not about their best interest but the people who put them there or wait did he steal that election so he thinks he is above the law like the rest of the democrats.

  3. POTUS Trump is/ was correct. Government is a swamp when an elected official starts to think of it as their livelihood. TOO many of them do. To them it is once in office I live there and of course my income increases. “We work behind the curtain!”

  4. It is about time our employees in Washington, DC, were held accountable to their employers–and make no mistake, we are their employers. My suggestion, as an extremely disgruntled voter, would be to use every tool available to let these disloyal office holders know their main responsibility, after protecting and defending the Constitution, is to their constituents–not to their party or their own self-aggrandizement. We should censure them and if our state constitutions allow it, we should recall them for failure to do their due diligence.

    All I wrote was nothing but the truth. This Country is going down the sewer with all the Democrats.

  6. Agree with all posts! It is up to the party to censure these traitors, let them know they are not listening to the will of the people! They are supposed to be representing US, not their own agenda, so—— remove them !

  7. If only that could/would happen, we as a country would be much better off. For years we needed to drain the Washington swamp. This is why it is so important to have term limits, so these career criminal politicians have to leave after two terms just like a President or any other position where term limits apply. For now censorship will have to do. We need to find out if our individual states allow censoring our elected politicians. Put all the pond scum on notice!!!
