The Weber County GOP voted in favor to censure Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT), Saturday evening during its convention for the senator’s vote to impeach former President Donald Trump earlier this year, Breitbart reported.
County Party Secretary Jill Koford revealed over the weekend that the Weber County GOP passed the censure resolution 116-97.
“The Weber County Republican Convention censures Mitt Romney for his votes to convict President Trump in two U.S. Senate impeachment trials which denied the President due process, allowed falsified evidence, did not provide adequate time for an investigation, and did not follow the U.S. Constitution which states a President may only be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors,” reads the resolution.
The resolution also said thanks to Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Reps. Chris Stewart, John Curtis, Blake Moore and Burgess Owens “for voting against the Democrats’ politically motivated articles of impeachment.”
The Washington County GOP also voted to censure Romney in April for his votes to convict Trump in both impeachment trials, according to the DailyMail.
During Utah’s Republican State Convention in early May, Romney was booed, heckled and called names like ‘traitor’ and ‘communist’ by hundreds of delegates as he took the stage.
The resolution to censure Romney at a state-wide level failed 798-711.
