House Ethics Committee Tells Duncan Hunter To Stop Voting In House Due To Guilty Plea

https://www.yahoo.com/news/house-ethics-committee-duncan-hunter-voting-000811384.html

The House Ethics Committee informed Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) on Thursday that he should refrain from voting on the House floor in the wake of his guilty plea this week in a federal corruption case.

In a letter signed by the committee’s chairman, Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.), and ranking member, Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-Texas), the ethics committee noted a House “code of official conduct” rule that Hunter would violate by continuing to vote.

House Rule XXIII states that a member of the House who has been convicted of a crime that may carry a sentence of two or more years’ imprisonment “should refrain from participation in the business of each committee of which such individual is a member, and a Member should refrain from voting on any question at a meeting of the House or of the Committee of the Whole House on the state of the Union, unless or until judicial or executive proceedings result in reinstatement of the presumption of the innocence of such Member or until the Member is reelected to the House after the date of such conviction.”

He's a GOP criminal.  You think that's going to stop him? :no:
If capitalism is so great, why does it need to be bailed out by socialism every ten years?

 :no:..........soflo and board:

There was a time in this country’s most recent past that a House member similarly situated as this clown would have the basic common DECENCY to resign his office out of shame and humiliation. But this dude is obviously taking his cues from the dude in the Oval Office.

The House rule that’s cited^^^states the member “should” resign if the circumstances set forth in the Rule applies. That is “permissive” language, and creeps like Duncan Hunter will tell the House Ethics Comm to go “f” itself.

So the Dem leadership in the House need to play hardball with these criminals and thugs and just move to EXPEL their a.z.zes from the House.  >:(

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support.
