A GOP lawmaker has lost his committee posts after taking the fight against election fraud too far. The Republican representative indicated during an interview that violence could occur during the Electoral College vote on Monday.
The Republican-led Michigan House of Representatives has stripped Representative Gary Eisen of his duties for the remainder of his term, which ends December 31.
During a Monday morning interview on WPHM-AM, a local radio show, Eisen mentioned that he was planning to participate in an event that may be disruptive involving the Electoral College vote, and that he could not rule out the possibility of violence.
Eisen refused to reveal further details about the event, but promised that it would be “all over the news.”
“Sounds dangerous, Gary,” said the interviewer.
“It is,” Eisen replied.
When the interviewer proceeded to ask if he could assure that there would be “no violence,” Eisen said “No.”
Due to “credible threats of violence,” most of the state Capitol was closed on Monday.
Republican Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield condemned Eisen’s remarks during the announcement that the GOP representative was being removed from his posts.
“We have been consistent in our position on issues of violence and intimidation in politics — it is never appropriate and never acceptable. That is true of threats or suggestions of violence against … Republicans, Democrats, and members of the Electoral College,” Chatfield said in a statement.
“Elected officials must be clear that violence has no place in our democratic process,” Chatfield added. “Because of that, Rep. Eisen has been removed from his committee assignments for the rest of the term.”
Unlike Democrats, the GOP takes action quickly when a member of their party does or says something inappropriate or illegal. Take Steve King, for example. Democrats have allowed radicalism and insane remarks coming from high-ranking members of their party for years, with no consequences whatsoever. The divide in this country is continuing to grow.
