The Republican Accountability Project is now grading congressional Republicans on their support for democratic values after announcing the creation of a “GOP Democracy Report Card,” which will assign grades from “A” to “F.” Only 14 Republicans in Congress received an “A,” while over a 100 Republicans received an “F.”
The Republican Accountability Project slammed House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) in a new ad, urging him to address the behavior of members within his own party rather than censure Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) for remarks she made ahead of the conviction of former police officer Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd.
In a new ad, the Republican Accountability Project takes aim at Republicans who support and promote “lies, violence, and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.”
The ad uses footage of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) declaring that former President Donald Trump won the 2020 election to make its point. The ad also incorporates footage of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) urging people to “go to the streets and be violent.” Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) also makes an appearance; the ad brings up her recent remarks that the wildfires that have ravaged California for much of the last year were started by “Jewish space lasers,” a claim that represents just a fraction of a slew of highly controversial and violently charged statements that have prompted calls to have her removed from House committee assignments.
The Republican Accountability Project has launched an ad campaign to force Senators Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) to resign over their decision to vote against the Electoral College certification after a mob of former President Donald Trump’s supporters violently stormed the Capitol in a bid to overturn the results of an election that President Joe Biden won handily.
