Special message from Chairman Dave Ball!

Censuring Pat Toomey!

 Fellow Washington County Republicans,


It is only after serious deliberation that we have taken the action we have to affirm a Resolution of Censure of Senator Patrick J. Toomey.


Censure is a formal expression of strong disapproval or harsh criticism which we believe is appropriate in this instance. This action has been taken in response to overwhelming reaction on the part of the 72,000 Republicans here in Washington County who voted for President Trump regarding the votes of Senator Toomey to first join Democrats in declaring the second impeachment sham constitutional and his second vote, again joining Democrats, to vote to continue the trial in the Senate. At issue is not one’s right to express one’s opinion but rather casting a meaningless vote intended entirely for malicious and self- serving purposes, a vote that brings dishonor to the party and does not reflect the will of the Republicans of Pennsylvania, 3.4 million of which voted for President Trump.


Such a Resolution was very nearly produced by the PAGOP last weekend, and would have been had it not been for Senator Toomey’s assurance that he would neither vote to continue the trial nor vote for impeachment.


Quite obviously he has already reneged on the first part of his assurance. This is absolutely unacceptable.


We have acted decisively to send a very strong message to Senator Toomey that he works for us and what he is doing is not in the interest of his constituents or our Party. Stand solid and united as Republicans and Patriots.

Motion to Censure Letter

MOTION TO CENSURE


A MOTION TO CENSURE SENATOR PATRICK J. TOOMEY,

U.S. SENATOR FROM PENNSYLVANIA, FOR

VOTING TO PROCEED WITH IMPEACHMENT AND VOTING

THAT THE PROCEEDINGS ARE CONSTITUTIONAL


WHEREAS President Trump has been harassed and attacked for

four years by Democrats and the media; and


WHEREAS President Trump has been unjustly accused of

multiple transgressions that have been proven baseless; and


WHEREAS President Trump was previously impeached on

groundless claims; and


WHEREAS President Trump is once again the victim of

Democratic attack, media hysteria and unsubstantiated claims;

and


WHEREAS Once again the Democrats have passed a baseless bill

of impeachment driven by political grandstanding and their desire

simply to inflict pain; and


WHEREAS Sen. Paul raised a point of order arguing that the

impeachment trial is unconstitutional now that President Trump is

out of office; and


WHEREAS Forty five Republican Senators sided with the

President and Sen. Paul’s point of order to dismiss the

impeachment trial; and


WHEREAS Senator Toomey voted against his party and his

President and voted to continue with the trial to impeach the

President; and


WHEREAS Senator Toomey again voted against his party and the

former President at the beginning of the impeachment trial as one

of six Republican Senators joining Democrats in declaring the

proceeding constitutional; and


WHEREAS Senator Toomey has made clear his personal

disregard for both former President Trump and the Republican

Party.


NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Washington

County Republican Party does pronounce a Resolution of

Censure on Senator Toomey who has acted contrary to the good

order and interest of the Republican Party.

About Us

The Washington County Republican Party was formed as far back as the Whiskey Rebellion. Then, as now, Republicans gathered on key issues that were affecting their lives. Citizens became interested in the causes and started to become part of the political process to better the community.


Today WCRP has grown into 176 precincts with 14 school districts and 57 municipalities. We have been successful in bringing in new committee people to our precincts, who see the local, state and national problems. They have been the backbone of helping our conservative candidates win seats in elections. As we grow and become stronger, we bring unity to the Republican Party. We are proud of our Washington County Republican Party and what they have accomplished. We also are proud and support the active W&J College Republicans and the California University Republicans.


When Washington County residents vote, they communicate their opinions and their desires are heard by our candidates, as well as, our elected officials.
