    No he's not, and he's not the only one. The problem is he (and they) were hired by their constituents and should be fired by same.
    do the constituents have the ability to do a recall election? If not it's really a moot point. I can't remember any recalls for federal office (yes I know all about recalls for state level politicians)
    Trees don't grow on money

    Congressional representatives can't be recalled. At this point the only people with the ability to act on the fact that he outright lied about literally everything to voters in order to get elected are the house of representatives.

    That's not going to happen of course because integrity and ethics are not a strong suit of the modern republican. They will simply wring their hands and bleat "but what can we do????? The voters voted for who they thought he was and we must respect the will of the deceived voter...."

    Well, the new House Republicans are certainly demonstrating their skill at governance the past few days.

    The Republicans allowed things to get out of hand, and now reigning in Boebert, Gaetz, Jorden etc. is not going well. Iím relieved we have nothing else to focus on like inflation, health care, the economy or immigration. Those come after Hunters laptop, if a speaker is ever elected. I think itís round six. Embarrassing.

    Another news story reported some republicans wanted to work with Dems to get the threshold lowered for the amount of votes needed. Can you say Merrick Garland?

    I never quite understood that, one way or the other.

    I mean, if I had to work in that wretched hive of scum and villainy, I'd likely want to be armed. I'd also have basic concerns about the security of the premises after the events of Jan 6, and would hesitate to rely on others to protect me.

    I just saw this, which seems about right:

    All of this brawling among the Republicans is not dignified.

    I am here for it! I like the drama. It is lively.
