Like his GOP peers in North Carolina and Utah, Sen. Pat Toomey is experiencing some serious blowback from the Trump Cult currently masquerading as his state’s Republican Party. Toomey’s crime? Voting (correctly) to convict Trump of the impeachment charge for the role he played in provoking the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill.
One party official in Washington County went so far as to say “we did not send him there to do the right thing or whatever he said he was doing. We sent him there to represent us,” which, given the evidence against Trump, is as close to admitting you’re in a personality cult as is possible in U.S. politics.
