We already knew that Virginia’s four Republican members of Congress – Rob Wittman (R-VA01), Bob Good (R-VA05), Ben Cline (R-VA06) and Morgan Griffith (R-VA09) – were horrendously bad in every way, including their unforgiveable support for overturning the November 2020 presidential election. Now, a new report card by the Republican Accountability Project confirms this evaluation. As CNN’s Clare Foran tweeted:
I got a first look at a new effort from anti-Trump conservative group @AccountableGOP. They graded GOP lawmakers on whether they’re upholding or undermining democracy. Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise both received an “F” grade. Liz Cheney got an “A.”
So how did Virginia’s four Republican members of Congress do? As you can see, they all got “F/VERY POOR” grades, due to their support for the Texas Amicus Brief (“126 Republican lawmakers signed an amicus brief in support of this lawsuit that attempted to disenfranchise millions of law-abiding voters”); “Electoral College Objections”; “Public Statements About the Election” (“Casting doubt on the validity of this election, on an election that Trump’s own Attorney General recognized was free of widespread voting fraud, constitutes an attack on a cornerstone of our democracy: free and fair elections”); and “Voting to Impeach or Convict Trump” (the vast majority of Republicans did not do so). Just remember these grades the next time you go to the polls, or anytime one of these Congressmen opens their mouth about any topic…and treat what they have to say accordingly!
