Seven “Republican” senators voted “yes” to impeach Trump during Saturday’s vote in the upper chamber. Now some of the states from which they hail are censuring these senators for their outrageous votes.
The seven GOP senators who turned traitor to party and country are the usual suspects:
- Richard Burr (North Carolina)
- Bill Cassidy (Louisiana)
- Susan Collins (Maine)
- Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
- Mitt Romney (Utah)
- Ben Sasse (Nebraska)
- Pat Toomey (Pennsylvania)
These un-American traitors all agreed with the false statement that Trump “incited” an insurrection.
But, almost immediately, two states rebuked their senators.
The Louisiana Republican Party jumped to censure Sen. Cassidy.
“The Executive Committee of the Republican Party of Louisiana has unanimously voted to censure Senator Bill Cassidy for his vote cast earlier today to convict former President Donald J. Trump on the impeachment charge,” the Louisiana GOP said in a brief statement.
For his part, Cassidy tried to claim he was honoring the constitution, saying, “Our Constitution and our country is more important than any one person.”

North Carolina also took a switch to their traitor, Richard Burr.
“North Carolina Republicans sent Senator Burr to the United States Senate to uphold the Constitution and his vote today to convict in a trial that he declared unconstitutional is shocking and disappointing,” NCGOP Chairman Michael Whatley said.
Burr also tried to explain himself away, saying, “The evidence is compelling that President Trump is guilty of inciting an insurrection against a coequal branch of government and that the charge rises to the level of high Crimes and Misdemeanors. Therefore, I have voted to convict. I do not make this decision lightly, but I believe it is necessary.
Utah… what say you about Mitt the Moron?
The York County, Pennsylvania, Republican committee voted on Saturday to censure Sen. Pat Toomey for his impeachment vote.
