Upon Article I section 5 with S.R. 338, Select Committee on Ethics has the authority to evaluate complaints and investigate allegations of improper conduct which may reflect upon the Senate, violations of law, and violations of rules and regulations of the Senate. Unwritten norms of behavior, reflected in the established customs of the Senate, are an important source of behavioral standards. I do believe that Senator Ted Cruz's conduct related to the insurrection represents an “improper conduct” per S.R. 338 and that we need to build a petition for his resignation or removal from the senate. Public office is a public trust and people’s trust has been shattered by his actions. As the Senate or House may discipline a Member for any misconduct, including conduct or activity which does not directly relate to official duties, when such conduct unfavorably reflects on the institution as a whole, therefore I, as a citizen of this country, officially complain from Senator Ted Cruz that he did not follow the oath of office, his words encouraged those individuals involved with insurrection directly or indirectly and he betrayed the people's trust. Let me remind everyone on the Oath that all senators swear to as the following:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God”
The forefather of this country knew such things might happen, especially after the civil war. Article I section 5 states that each house may determine the rule of its proceeding, punish members for disorderly behavior, and with the concurrence of two thirds, expel a member.
I appreciate your urgent look at this matter as “a house that is divided against itself, cannot stand.” What people need is a demonstration of unity and enforcement of the rule of law. No one is above the law, no one is below the law and you, our Senate leadership, have been given this privilege to enforce the law. God bless you and God bless the United State of America.
