California Republicans who contested election results would be banned from Assembly under bill
Members of Congress who voted against certifying the results of the 2020 presidential election could be banned from the California Assembly floor under a new bill introduced Thursday by Assemblyman Marc Levine, D-Greenbrae.
The resolution would permanently ban the 147 members of Congress who objected to the election results in Arizona or Pennsylvania, two swing states that went to Biden.
Among those who voted not to certify results in those states are seven California Republicans: Rep. Ken Calvert, Corona; Rep. Mike Garcia, Santa Clarita; Rep. Darrell Issa, El Cajon; Rep. Doug LaMalfa, Richvale; Rep Devin Nunes, Tulare; Rep. Jay Obernolte, Big Bear Lake; and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Bakersfield.
Levine’s office said in a press release that the actions by those members of Congress are inconsistent with the “principles of our democracy and the oath of office each of these individuals took to protect and defend the United States Constitution.”
“The California State Assembly Chambers is a sacred shrine of our democracy,” Levine said in a statement. “Access to the floor of the State Assembly is a privilege, a solemn space, whose actions require respect and adherence to our democratic values and the rule of law.”
