The executive committee of the Republican Party of Louisiana voted on Saturday to censure Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) over his vote to convict former President Trump for inciting the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol.
"The Executive Committee of the Republican Party of Louisiana has unanimously voted to censure Senator Bill Cassidy for his vote cast earlier today to convict former President Donald J. Trump on the impeachment charge," the party said in a brief statement.
Cassidy was one of seven GOP senators who joined Democrats in voting to convict Trump for "willfully inciting violence against the Government of the United States."
The Louisiana Republican tweeted on Saturday that he voted to convict because "Our Constitution and our country is more important than any one person. I voted to convict President Trump because he is guilty."

Purge the corrupt traitors from the party. They should be Democraps.
To me, it seems that censure (or “censor”, as Maxine The Genius says) is nothing. Is there more to it than just shaking a finger at the offender? Is there a penalty?
This, after Trump endorsed and campaigned for Cassidy last February. Hope Cassidy enjoyed those 30 silver pieces.
I’ll bet he has never read the Constitution.
Heh LA GOP....His history was being a Dem in the past. That should have been the first clue before nominating.
This is huge.
These people aren’t even fair.
These are really good signs the grass roots are feeling fertilized.
You are mistaking the elected officials in D.C. with the party.
There are 75 million or more Trump voters out there. They are the Republican party, not a few elected, corrupt, officials.
It's almost as if people don't understand that the game is rigged, and these odds were before the Steal that happened on 11/3/20
“This is huge.”
In what way? I never understood the censure thing beyond, “Tsk tsk - you’re a bad boy”.
Whew! (You had me worried for a while.) ;)
I assume it to be sarcasm although I’m not the one who posted the comment.
What is Cassidy’s history? I know next to nothing about the traitor. Someone mentioned he was a Democrat? Obviously he still is.
It is the Media who promotes them and protects them.
Trust in the Media is at an all time low.
When will Kentucky tackle McConnell?
Thanks for the image of the re-election rates.
