Rep. Tom Rice (R-SC) was censured by the South Carolina Republican Party on Saturday after being the only Republican in their caucus to vote to impeach Donald Trump for inciting the violence and insurrection at the U.S. Capitol earlier this year.

Rice was one of ten House Republicans to vote with Democrats on impeaching Trump for a second time.

Responding to the news, CNN’s Jake Tapper noted, “GOP officials from coast to coast doing nothing to sanction those who spread the Big Lie or incited violence at the Capitol, nothing about the calls to violence or anti-Semitic crackpottery by Rep Greene, but LOTS being done to punish the 10 Republicans who voted for impeachment.”
