Animal House Votes to Censure Adam Schiff

The House last voted to censure a member in 2021, when Democrats were in control of the chamber. They issued a formal rebuke to Arizona GOP Rep. Paul Gosar for posting an anime-style video on social media that depicted the killing of Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.

Ahead of the vote, Schiff thanked his GOP colleagues for offering the resolution.

“You honor me with your enmity. You flatter me with this falsehood. You, who are the authors of a big lie about the last election, must condemn the truth tellers and I stand proudly before you,” Schiff said on the House floor.
