Democrats are doing everything they can to pressure Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) to resign.
Those on the left have used the unrest at the Capitol on January 6th to pressure Cruz and Hawley to resign, claiming they are responsible. Democrats have been on a tear for almost a month hoping they could make one of these senators vulnerable however they just got some really bad news.
A recent poll has found that 46% of Missourians approve of the job Hawley has done.
The poll conducted by the Missouri Scout found that 46% of Missourians approve of Hawley, 40% disapprove of his job, and 14% are unsure.
Hawley has a better approval rate than other members of the Republican Party in his state. The poll showed that 39% of Missourians disapprove of the other Republican senator from Missouri, Roy Blunt, and 38% approve.
The polls comes after members of the media have claimed Hawley led an “insurrection” and called him a “seditionist.”
Democrats in the Senate have filed number ethic complaints against Hawley however, the Senator recently turned the tables on them.
Recently, Hawley wrote a letter to his fellow Democrats that have filed complaints on them notifying them that he is filing harassment complaints against them.
In light of the shameful abuse of the ethics process you have deliberately engaged in, I have considered whether I should call for you to resign or be expelled from the Senate. But I continue to believe in the First Amendment, which the US Supreme Court has repeatedly said protects even “offensive” and malicious speech, such as yours.
The First Amendment does not, however, give you carte blanche to abuse the Senate ethics process. I have today filed a complaint with the ethics committee that details your deliberate and partisan abuse of this process, including your apparent coordination with various dark money groups, and requests that you be appropriately disciplined.
In his complaint against Democrats Hawley is demanding answers into if Senate Democrats:
- Coordinated with the Never Trump organization the Lincoln Project, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), MoveOn, Voto Latino, the Sierra Club, and other outside organizations.
- Coordinated with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), the Joe Biden administration, and other members of Democrat leadership.
- Coordinated with lobbyists for corporations urging the suspension of those corporations’ political contributions.
