Recommended Posts

Adam Kinzinger (IL-R) will be remembered as one of the more vocal Never Trump Republicans, although he voted with Trump 90% of the time, according to statistics, including in attempts to repeal Obamacare. Kinzinger was not really a moderate US Rep, although he does support three bills below that align more with liberals.

He declined to run for reelection soon aftering being censured by Trump-controlled GOPers for helping investigate the coup attempt of Jan 6th. The GOP made no attempt to censure the Democratic members of the investigation team, which shows that were more concerned with party members having free will to move according to their conscience than with the idea of the investigation. Liz Cheney was also censured. 

His actions:

Kinzinger, Adam 2016 GOPer who refused to vote for Trump or Clinton for pres
Kinzinger, Adam 2019 Votes against impeaching Trump during 1st impeachment, but later says in an interview that he regrets doing so
Kinzinger, Adam 2021 1 of 10 GOPers to vote for Trump's impeachment after the Jan 6th insurrection

Why would GOP organizations censure Democrats? Lol, there would be zero point in that.

Thats my error then. I thought it was a US House censure and not just a GOP org censure.
