GOP Group Spotlights Kevin McCarthy’s Hypocrisy in New Ad

A conservative group is calling out House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy for hypocrisy after he led an attempt to censure Rep Maxine Waters earlier this week.

McCarthy accused Waters of “violent rhetoric” when she told protesters to “stay on the street” and “get more confrontational” if Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin wasn’t found guilty in the George Floyd murder case.

“If Kevin McCarthy really opposes dangerous rhetoric, he can start by cleaning up his own house,” states the voiceover in the video, which will air on Fox News during “Hannity” in Washington, D.C. next week.

The Republican Accountability Project has been running ads against members of the party who enabled Trump and supported the Jan. 6 insurrection.  The group has vowed to recruit and support challengers to those Republicans they refer to as the “Hall of Shame.”
