Censure Rep. Maxine Waters for Using her Congressional Seat to Encourage Harassment

Representative Maxine Waters grossly misused her seat as a member of the House of Representatives to encourage people to break the law by stalking private citizens and physically denying them access to basic amenities of life because they are members of the current administration's cabinet. In her own words, "If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere."

This conduct had been widely condemned by her colleagues from both parties. In the words of her congressional colleague, Chuck Schumer:

“If you disagree with a politician, organize your fellow citizens to action and vote them out of office, but no one should call for the harassment of political opponents. That’s not right. That’s not American.”

We the undersigned call on Rep. Paul Ryan and the House of Representatives to officially censure Rep. Waters for her reprehensible conduct that violates the most fundamental principles of public service and can easily lead to crimes against American citizens.
