Smile Politely

Rodney Davis voted for the January 6th commission bill

As the saying goes, a broken clock is right twice a day.

Rodney Davis was one of 35 representives that voted to establish a bipartisan commission to investigate the attack on the Capitol. It’s a low bar to jump over, but it should be acknowledged that he stood with a very slim minority of House Republicans who voted yes, while Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Steve Scalise (R-LA) were pressuring Republicans to vote no. The only other Illinois Republican to vote yes was, unsurprisingly, IL-16’s Adam Kinzinger.

Mary Miller voted no. This is also unsuprising, since she was there that day quoting Hitler.

Maybe Davis is just doing the right thing because it’s possible he’s about to lose his seat anyway and announce a run for governor, but he did do the right thing, so here we are acknowledging it.
