GOP Senator Bill Cassidy voted to convict President Trump during his sham impeachment trial in the Senate. The blowback from his constituents was swift and angry.
In a decisive move that bodes ill for Cassidy’s future in the GOP, the Louisiana GOP Executive Committee immediately voted to censure him for his vote.

On Tuesday, the Louisiana GOP stated it is “profoundly disappointed” in Cassidy’s vote to join with Senate Democrats in their claim that impeaching Trump is constitutional and that a “trial” should proceed.
Cassidy said at that time, “A sufficient amount of evidence of constitutionality exists for the Senate to proceed with the trial.”
Cassidy, and the other Republicans that joined him – Sens. Richard Burr (NC); Susan Collins (ME); Ben Sasse (NE); Mitt Romney (UT); Lisa Murkowski (AK); and Pat Toomey (R) – played into the Democrats game on impeachment. They’re either traitors, or criminally stupid.
They need to leave the party – and the sooner the better.
