Mitt Romney was censured Saturday by Weber County in Utah after the state’s GOP narrowly missed out on doing the same during its convention just last weekend.
‘The Weber County Republican Convention censures Mitt Romney for his votes to convict President Trump in two U.S. Senate impeachment trials,’ the resolution censuring Romney reads.
It continues that the impeachment against Trump ‘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.’
Weber County Party Secretary Jill Koford revealed over the weekend that the GOP in the jurisdiction passed the censure resolution 116-97.
The Washington County GOP also voted to censure Romney in April for his votes to convict Trump in both impeachment trials.
Romney has been a divisive figure in the Republican Party over the last few years, especially after breaking with Trump and positioning himself as a moderate senator.
During Utah’s Republican State Convention on May 1, where he narrowly missed a censure vote, Romney was booed by hundreds of delegates as he took the stage for his remarks. He was also called names by audience members like ‘traitor’ and ‘communist.’
While speaking to the two-thousand strong audience, Romney said: ‘Aren’t you embarrassed?’
‘I’m a man who says what he means, and you know I was not a fan of our last president’s character issues,’ he continued.
This spectacle prompted Trump to call Romney a ‘stone cold loser’ in one of his infamous statements from his ‘Save America’ political action committee account.
The resolution to censure Romney at a state-wide level failed 798-711.
