The Seven Dempublicans (RINOS) Who Voted with Democrats To Convict Trump Didn't Think They'd Get A Free Pass, Did They?

Local GOP officials closing the tent to Trump apostates:
The wave of party-sponsored censures greeting Republicans who cross former President Donald Trump reveals a GOP interested in pushing out heretics whose lone political sin is disloyalty to the vanquished party leader.
More than a dozen prominent Republicans have been slapped with censure resolutions by state or county parties this year. Most were rebuked for voting to impeach Trump or to convict the former president at trial in the Senate because they hold him responsible for the Jan. 6 siege of the Capitol by his grassroots supporters. Some Republicans were censured because party activists decided they ignored Trump’s claims that the 2020 election was stolen.
In most instances, reprimanded Republicans have pristine conservative records. Sens. Richard Burr of North Carolina, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania are the latest Republicans to be censured, having voted Saturday to convict Trump on the single article of impeachment approved by the House on Jan. 13. Before Trump exited the White House, they supported his legislative agenda nearly 90% of the time. No matter, this is about fealty to a man.
“In terms of this particular vote, it hit a raw nerve with people,” said Michael Whatley, chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party. “Folks from one end of the state to the other were disappointed.” --->READ MORE HERE

Louisiana GOP censures Sen. Cassidy over impeachment vote to convict Trump:
The Louisiana Republican Party moved swiftly to punish GOP Sen. Bill Cassidy for his vote to convict former President Donald Trump in his Senate trial for sparking the Capitol riot.
“The Executive Committee of the Republican Party of Louisiana has unanimously voted to censure Senator Bill Cassidy for his vote cast earlier today to convict former President Donald J. Trump on the impeachment charge,” the party said in a statement​ late Saturday.
Cassidy was one of seven Republican senators who broke ranks to vote with all Senate Democrats to convict Trump on the one impeachment charge of “incitement of an insurrection” for his role in the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol that left five people dead.
The final vote was 57-43, far short of the 67 votes required to convict Trump in the chamber. --->READ BORE HERE
