Missouri Congresswoman files resolution to oust Republicans who voted against certifying presidential election votes

U.S. Representative Cori Bush

A U.S. Congresswoman from Missouri formally files a resolution, to oust more than 100 Republicans from the U.S. House.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Representative Cori Bush filed the resolution on Monday, calling on those who voted against certifying results of the November 3 election to be removed from their posts.  Her resolution cites the 14th Amendment, which prohibits any person who goes against the union or gives aid to the nation’s enemies from holding federal office. 

Bush’s resolution targets five Missouri House Republicans, including Billy Long, Vicky Hartzler, Sam Graves, Jason Smith, and Blaine Luetkemeyer. 

Bush told the Dispatch that the country can’t allow for people to give comfort, aid, and support to insurrection and continue to be a member of Congress.
