After calling for her followers to harass anyone who supports Trump, Congressman Biggs petitioned for Maxine’s Censure and resignation. The statement read:
“Individuals have the right to debate their differences civilly, without fear of retribution. Unfortunately, Maxine Waters’ comments condone public violence and encourage actions that jeopardize the safety and security of government officials and the American people.
“Unfortunately, we are returning to the vitriol of that day. Those determined to undermine the progress and agenda of President Donald Trump, have taken it upon themselves to demonize their opposition. As Members of Congress we have the responsibility to lead by example and this rhetoric is simply unacceptable.”
This was petitioned on June 25th and fellow republican Steve Scalise supported it. It was only a year ago when congressman Scalise was shot due to political tensions. It seems we have already forgotten and the tensions are almost as high as they were last year.
