The Arizona Republican Party censured State House Speaker Rusty Bowers and deemed him no longer a Republican in good standing after he testified before the 1/6 Committee.

The Arizona Republican Party announced the censorship in a press release:

Last night, the Executive Committee of the Republican Party of Arizona, LLC censured the Speaker of the Arizona House of Representatives – Rusty Bowers (former LD25/current LD10 located in Mesa, Arizona). This includes ceasing all state support as a member of the Republican Party. Rusty has failed in his specific actions, including co-sponsoring Democratic-led bills and refusing to work with the most conservative legislative body in 10 years during arguably one of the most critical sessions in the US. history of Arizona. Additionally, he consistently displayed a general disregard for the leadership of the Republican Party at the precinct, legislative, county, state, and federal levels.

President Bowers urged the state party to take disciplinary action following several instances described below in which Bower opposed the Republican platform and the will of the Republican Party voter of the ‘Arizona. It goes far beyond any political disagreement and acknowledges his failures as president to implement strong conservative legislation and play the political pendulum instead.

On the face of it, it’s easy to miss it, but the phrase contempt for Republican leadership at the federal level means Bowers is being censured for daring to appear before the 1/6 committee and testify about how Trump pressured him. to nullify the state’s 2020 election. results.

All of the other allegations that the state GOP threw into the censorship were nonsense. Censorship is Donald Trump’s way of trying to punish and get rid of Bowers.

However, it speaks volumes about the level of anti-democratic dysfunction within the Republican Party that one of Bowers’ offenses was working bipartisanly with Democrats on legislation.

Rusty Bowers did the right thing for democracy and the country, and now Trump is trying to kick him out of the Republican Party.
