House Democrats blocked a censure of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) on Tuesday that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) introduced to hold Waters accountable for inflammatory remarks that she made over the weekend related to the trial of Derek Chauvin.
“Democrats held firm in their support for Waters with all party members voting to ‘table,’ or kill, the censure resolution introduced by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, 216-210,” The Washington Post reported.
Waters said at a protest in Minnesota over the weekend that “protesters” were “looking for a guilty verdict,” and if they don’t get what they want, then “we cannot go away.” Regarding what “protesters” should do if they do not get the verdict that they want, Waters responded that activists have “got to stay on the street,” “get more active,” and “get more confrontational.”
