Thumbs up House Introduces Measure To Officially Sanction Maxine Waters, Request Her Resignatio

I was glad to see this, but this doesn't mean that it will pass. Maxine is a terrible representative, filled with hate and stupidity, and it's disgusting that anyone would vote someone like that into office in the first place. Even Nancy Pelosi has called out Maxine for her reprehensible behavior. If crazy Pelosi speaks out against a fellow Democrat, which I read in another article, you know that person was way out of line.

Quote:
A Republican Representative from Arizona, Andy Biggs, has introduced a measure in the House Tuesday that calls for an official censure against Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) for her comments encouraging discrimination and harassment against Trump administration officials and members of the GOP.

Biggs justified his measure, which also asks Waters to resign, by saying that he does not believe Waters' behavior is becoming of a member of Congress, and that, after being repudiated even by members of her own party, it's clear Waters should face disciplinary action.

“So we just introduced it, we have some cosponsors, but what she did was to basically incite people to come after and attack members of the president’s cabinet,” Biggs told The Hill. “And also spread that out to more people.”

Biggs added that, “Everybody agrees that it was just highly objectionable what she did."

The measure includes a provision that will allow Waters to avoid any major consequences if she fully apologizes for her statements, which Biggs notes could be interpreted as encouraging violence against her political opponents.

“If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd,” Waters said to an audience Sunday at a rally in California. “And you push back on them. Tell them they’re not welcome any more, anywhere!”

So far, only a handful of Representatives have signed on to Biggs's bill, but more signatures are expected, the Hill reports.

I just read some more about the vile Maxine:

Quote:
The Secret Service is investigating Rep. Maxine Waters after she urged people to harass and confront Trump administration officials and supporters in public, according to The American Mirror. The explosive report came from journalist Laura Loomer, who said she filed a complaint with the Secret Service against Waters.

Conservative watchdog Judicial Watch has also filed a complaint against Waters with the House Office of Congressional Ethics, saying her calls for violence against a sitting president is against the law. The group argues lawmakers should vote on whether to censure Waters, which could force her to resign. She is also under fire for praising the LA riots, which resulted in nearly a billion dollars worth of property damage.

On Monday, Loomer tweeted that after she filed her complaint, the Secret Service told her that it was “looking into” Waters chilling remarks.

I'd rather see her charged with a crime than merely being censured. Either way, she needs to be removed from office.

For what? Being a twit? Last I looked, that was not an offense requiring resignation.

Making direct statements for violence against other people, pretty much caps off Waters continual offensive remarks and actions.

This country has enough problems, we don't need divisive people like Waters making things worse.

It is my opinion that Maxine will have no choice but to retire. Sayonara, pest!
