Former Speaker of the House Tom DeLay is urging House Republicans to file ethics charges against the Democrats who participated in the sit-in protest.
The Texas Tribune reported: “I’m heartbroken. The destruction of dignity, decorum of the people’s House,” he said. “That House doesn’t belong to those members. It belongs to the people of the United States, and for them to desecrate it like they just did is beyond me.” Though it’s been more than a decade since his fearsome reign at the Capitol, DeLay says he knows exactly what he’d do: “You cannot allow things like this to happen without some consequences,” he said. “I think what I’d do is file ethics charges against every member that did this.”
