Rep. Liz Cheney is under fire in Wyoming where Republicans remain unhappy that their elected official with a solid conservative voting record, fulfilled her Constitutional duty which compelled her to vote for the impeachment of then-President Trump:
Republicans in two Wyoming counties have voted to rescind recognition of Rep. Liz Cheney as a member of their party.
The Republican parties for Park and Carbon counties both unanimously voted in support of the move, which is symbolic and representative of the far right’s continued frustration with the congresswoman following her vote to impeach former President Donald Trump.
“You will no longer be recognized as the official Republican Congressional Representative by the Park County Republican Party,” Martin Kimmet, the chairman of the Park County Republicans, wrote in a letter Thursday to Cheney.
Park County acted first with the letter. Carbon County Republicans voted Saturday, taking it a step further by unanimously backing a formal resolution.
“Park County set up the ball, Carbon County spiked it,” Joey Correnti, chairman of the Carbon County Republican Party, told the Star-Tribune. “And now other counties, I say by the end of the week you’ll have at least three or four other counties that are having meetings that will pass a similar resolution.”
Apparently, five other counties have requested copies of Carbon County’s resolution, indicating that they will likely follow suit.
And of course, Trump remains firmly planted in Wyoming County Republican Party minds despite Carbon County chairman Correnti’s weaselly trying to claim otherwise:
But the votes in Park and Carbon counties, Correnti explained, were about more than Cheney’s voting record.
“This has very little to do with Donald Trump, except for he was her focus when she started to ignore the voices of the Wyoming Republicans or the Wyoming voters in mass,” he said.
Both the Park and Carbon letters to Cheney ended almost identically.
“In short, and in the immortal words of the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump…”You’re Fired!””
State GOP censures elected official for adhering to the oath that she took to the Constitution? Check!
County GOP publicly excoriates same elected official despite her consistently conservative voting record? Check!
State GOP remains loyal to impeached President who attempted to overturn a legitimate election by pushing the Big Lie and instead turns on elected official who did not attempt to overturn a presidential election and push the Big Lie? Check!
Wyoming, this just isn’t a good look for you.
