Arizona state GOP moves to censure Cindy McCain, Jeff Flake

The Arizona GOP is expected to vote to censure Cindy McCain, the widow of the late Sen. John McCain (R), and former Sen. Jeff Flake (R) after both supported President-elect Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.

The party first disclosed its "Censure McCain" resolution last Sunday after it was mistakenly reported that the Maricopa County Republican Party voted to censure her. The county-level party only discussed censuring Cindy McCain but did vote to censure Flake.

The effort to censure the two big names in Arizona GOP politics is the latest in a long-standing rift between the grassroots wing of the Arizona GOP and other Republicans. Sen. McCain himself was censured by the state party in 2014 for what the state party saw as an insufficiently conservative voting record.

It comes as Arizona is becoming a more purple state. President-elect Joe Biden won the state in the 2020 election by a slim margin, becoming the first Democrat to win Arizona in a presidential election since 1996, when former President Clinton carried the state and businessman Ross Perot ran a strong third-party campaign.

1. You can censure a private citizen?

They have gone fucking nuts. Censure a widow for endorsing her late husband's best friend.

8. It's a group of private cisterns censuring private citizens

It has the same impact as that of a gardening club censuring a gardener who doesn't tow the gardening club's line.

12. Some gardeners are pretty extreme!

I watch YouTube videos on gardening and some of the comments are angry about what was presented in the video.

2. And if censure doesn't work, they'll start calling her a mean ol' poopyhead.

I really have no idea what this is supposed to accomplish.

4. They've lost their minds

The Arizona GOP is wasting their time with these censures?!

Are they aware of the problems facing their state? Like Covid? But they have time to waste on a meaningless gesture.

Idiots.
