House Introduces Measure To Officially Sanction Rep. Maxine Waters, Request Her Resignation

A Republican Representative from Arizona, Andy Biggs, has introduced a measure in the House Tuesday that calls for an official censure against Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) for her comments encouraging discrimination and harassment against Trump administration officials and members of the GOP.

Biggs justified his measure, which also asks Waters to resign, by saying that he does not believe Waters’ behavior is becoming of a member of Congress, and that, after being repudiated even by members of her own party, it’s clear Waters should face disciplinary action.

“So we just introduced it, we have some cosponsors, but what she did was to basically incite people to come after and attack members of the president’s cabinet,” Biggs told The Hill. “And also spread that out to more people.”

Biggs added that, “Everybody agrees that it was just highly objectionable what she did.”

Biggs’s official statement included a reference to last year’s baseball field shooting as an example of what could happen when rhetoric is taken too far.

“A little over a year ago, we witnessed a horrific shooting targeted at Congressional Republicans. That day, we promised that we would be better; that we would argue about ideas not people,” Biggs said in his official statement accompanying his bill.

“Unfortunately, we are returning to the vitriol of that day. Those determined to undermine the progress and agenda of President Donald Trump, have taken it upon themselves to demonize their opposition. As Members of Congress we have the responsibility to lead by example and this rhetoric is simply unacceptable,” he added.

The measure includes a provision that will allow Waters to avoid any major consequences if she fully apologizes for her statements, which Biggs notes could be interpreted as encouraging violence against her political opponents.

“If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd,” Waters said to an audience Sunday at a rally in California. “And you push back on them. Tell them they’re not welcome any more, anywhere!”

So far, only a handful of Representatives have signed on to Biggs’s bill, but more signatures are expected, the Hill reports.

        You are an idiot if you condone anything this insane Bitch says

        • Linda Hampton says:

          I agree! Something should have been done immediately
          Not weeks later. Not only that, but she should be punished severely, not just a slap on the hand. She has already stolen our tax dollars through aiding Obama, her assets should be frozen and no pension for her. I would love t0 see an investigation into how she affords million dollars on a congressman salary

          • Sule says:

            Agreed!

          • Marie Mar says:

            Her husband is a millionaire. Owns one of the big name tuna companies among other things. As a senator she has said “Yah” to a bunch of bills that have helped him get richer. Doesn’t even live in the district she represents and was responsible for the riots in her district. Should have been booted a long time ago. If her record was looked at, In my opinion, she has committed more then one impeachable crime, where President Trump has committed NOTHING, but good for the country!

          • Jennifer LaBonte' says:

            That’s a good thought to suggest to Andy Biggs. I’m in AZ & I will either call him or write him or both. She does not deserve to get away with what she has done. If she does, then that will only incite others to do much the same thing. Whether it’s right or wrong.

        • Marie Mar says:

          NO…..we should IMPEACH 1912…..LOL. Isn’t that about the time she was elected to the senate. She sure looks like it.

          • Marie Mar says:

            I correct….it’s Pelosi who’s husband owns the tuna company and is a millionaire and she has voted to make him richer. But, still, Maxy has been no shrinking violet.

          • Sugaree says:

            So true!!

        • MARYANN33 says:

          Yes, remove her now and forever and put in prison for her inciting violence to American public…She is mental and in no way should continue in office…Make requirements beginning with IQ to run for office..give us only the best of the best. Maxine has always been the worst of the worst and does not in any way depict black people because she is the lowest possible specimen of a very bad black lacking all things good and wise.

    • Randy says:

      You are 100% correct….. Waters and Pelosi are manna from heaven for the GOP. Don’t get in their way — They are your tickets to election victory as long as their mouths keep moving.

    • Duane E. Pettengill says:

      Really Margaret, it is morons like you that give the Democratic party a bad name as do idiots like Nancy, Waters, and the rest of that Democratic crew. Name something they have achieved during all their time in office? The sooner we get term limits the better as we have some Republicans (that act like democrats) we need to get rid of. I have lived through many Presidents and have never experienced that hate of this President and then you have Barry baby out their running a ghost government which as far as I am concerned both him and that thing he is married to should both be jailed for treason!

    • Ronald Hyland says:

      I get your point! They help turn people on to Trumps side. Boy, is it working!

    • AMY GARRETT says:

      PARDON ME IF I HAVE MISSED SOMETHING. “CHUVKY”, NANCY AND THE REST HAVE SEEMED TO WANT TO DESTROY THEIR OWN PARTY.

  • AMY GARRETT says:

    THIS SPECIES OF SO CALLED “HUMAN” IS A DANGER NOT ONLY TO THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION, BUT TO AMERICAN CITIZENS ALL OVER THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. SHE SHOULD BE ARRESTED FOR ENCOURAGING RIOTS AND HARM NOT ONLY TO REPUBLICANS, BUT TO THE DEMOCRATS AS WELL. WHO KNOWS WHO WILL BE IN THE PLACES WHERE ANY POLITICIAN FREQUENTS. SHE OBVIOUSLY IS ENCOURAGING CIVIL WAR. YES, CIVIL WAR. HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF. SHE SHOULD BE FORCED TO RETIRE BEFORE SHE IS SUBJECTED TO A TRIAL FOR MURDER. REMEMBER, YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE THE MURDERED, JUST A PART OF IT.

  • Joseph M. Stonelake says:

    Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, & Pocahontas are Idiot’s who love to divide conquer and hate! I sincerely hope they are impeached for wanting divide rather than communication, resolve to accept or concede something (such as the views or wishes of another) agree to a plan or be in harmony witch it is obvious they are not capable of! Due process is for Legel Citizens, Not The Media or the Left to avoid or abuse to exploit their own agenda to promote HATE and disruption against a President or administration they don’t agree with! Immigration must be done responsibly! Come, register, apply properly.in an orderly fashion then you are not abused or used by sweatshops or criminal empires.
    The Media and the LEFT continue to support Illegal Immigrants but not Homeless Americans or sick or DIEING Veterans, elderly or babies. Where is the Justice? Liberal Democrat Politicians (like AKA Pocahontas) jump on the stage making outlandish unsupported statements for free media points and coverage crying over and supporting people who refuse to enter our country properly under the law! HUMM, will they open their own homes and checkbooks to support these same people or do they just want you to think they care for a vote from the liberal media and supporters. Take a bite, now chew and swallow without forcing our own citizens to starve or go homeless like Liberal Jerry Brown did in California (aka, MOONBEAM) Social Media , The Networks as well as the Liberals clamp on to many things, some good, but some that divide America causing damage without weighing the big picture! America can not support the World, All of the Welfare Cheats, etc. , When the money runs out and it will keep in mind that it was suppose to be Tax Monies used responsibly by the Government, Not Pet projects or supporting Illegal or fraud abusers etc. The day will come when you will need it and it won’t be there! Our Coffers are already in trouble, keep that in mind and be responsible! Your Children’s future is at risk, You can’t always decide with a mothers heart, you have to have a responsible heart for the people of America’s life and future! Thank you, President Trump, for doing just that and staying the course. I sincerely wish you and your family the best and I truly sorry and apologize to you and your family for the people who are concerned only about today, themselves, and the Crooks of the Democratic Party who would sell out America for their own gain .within the Government putting up smoke screens to hide their own dirty tricks and scams.
    Also please say NO to the Democrats who proposed Taxpayer funded housing for Congress. They just don’t know when to quit, they are worse than spoiled little children.

      • Ana gomes says:

        I agree. There is so much to attack the Demos souls that there is no need to offensive references to the color of her skin. There are many white lily Demos who aren’t any better than crazy Maxime. Color of skin is not going to enhance any argument.Let the demos have their opportunities to express their racism. We should be curbing ours. we will become stronger.

      Not if someone gets killed over it.

    • Dodi Livergood says:

      That was disgusting and uncalled for!!

  • Dottie Najera says:

    There is no choice she should be made to step down. She is a disgrace to her office and she has the nerve to say President Trump is not qualified to be president. She is not qualified to be a congresswoman.

  • Eunice says:

    Axine Waters must be indicted for inciting riots, and insurrection! She is guilty of SEDITION against a duly elected sitting president! He speech has been encouraging anarchy, and stirring up anger. She can’t just resign. She must be indicted and prosecuted, and then fired.

  • Nicholas Constantino says:

    If Rep. Maxine Waters would resigns and promise to never appear or speak in any public media again, would be good enough for me.

    • Emily says:

      Maxine’s scurrilous rant in inciting violence, calling for harassment of people because she hates them, and insurrection are criminal acts. She needs to punished like any common criminal and placed in a federal prison for a time.
      1.It will set an example,
      2.It will prove our laws apply to all.
      3. She will be the one to be impeached, not Trump as she wanted.
      4.She will lose her pension.
      Her egregious actions need to be punished.This demented woman wants a riot so she can use the podium just so she shoot her vile mouth off. We don’t need people hurt, possibly murdered, homes were destroyed in Baltimore and businesses looted and ruined. Americans do not need rabid savages placing innocent people at risk. Indict her, try her for sedition and inciting violence, and lock her up.

  • Seems ha mad maxine is in HOT WATERS. poor old woman. she knoweth not what she is wishing for. Her demon boss is spewing out of her mouth. And now she must await her punishment

  • Rob says:

    Politicians the world over are the problem.We see it in Europe.We see it in the UK. They get elected on platform “A” and then go off on their own agenda.We the people need to have the power to bring them instantly to heel when they stray!!!

    • MELINDA HENDERSON says:

      Rob, I am right with you! I also believe we need to have limited term appointments.
      When an elected official goes after the President of the United States, unless it’s for legitimate reason, there should be an automatic suspension, investigation, and then firing of those who have been found guilty. Maxine has stepped over the line, along with many more in office. I’m not sure why we continue to see them in the public agenda, and why there’s no arrests being made?

      • Marie Mar says:

        You folks talk a big fight here and you also have some good ideas, but how many of you write or call your congressman on a weekly basis and let them know how you feel about things and tell them how you will be voting on the 18th of November. Until the people rise up to the government, no one is going to be brought to justice, nothing is going to change except the country will be destroyed. Business as usual. We all need to also talk to people around us no matter how rabid they are and make sure that all of the states stay as red as they were the night that Trump was elected.Go to the congressional record and see how your representatives vote and then vote those Democrats right out of office. Talk to your republican friends about getting to the polls. Help people get there or encourage them to sign up for absentee ballots. The vote is the greatest liberty we have and the only power! Whew, did I say all of that? Well, I do practice what I preach.
