Pro-Trump GOP Lawmaker Censured After Speaking At White Nationalist Event

Arizona State Sen. Wendy Rogers (R) was censured on Tuesday by a vast majority of her colleagues after she delivered an address at a white nationalist conference over the weekend.

KPNX TV’s Brahm Resnik reported on Tuesday that Rogers was censured by the Arizona Senate by an overwhelming vote of 24 to 3.

Rogers herself was one of the three senators to vote against her own censure.

Shortly after the censure, a defiant Rogers took to Twitter to attack the colleagues who voted against her.

“I do not apologize, I will not back down and I am sorely disappointed in the leadership of this body for colluding with the Democrats to attempt to destroy my reputation,” Rogers wrote. “In the end, I rejoice in knowing I do and say what is right and I speak as a free American regardless of the actions of this corrupted process today.”

Earlier in the week, Rogers threatened to “personally destroy the career of any Republican” who voted against her.
