Editor James Bennett's column: Turncoat senator wasn't interested in democracy or patriotism on Jan. 6


Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo.

Another politician exposed himself as a hypocrite this week by introducing a bill that he thinks would whitewash his hands from the U.S. Capitol insurrection.

U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Missouri, raised a fist in solidarity with Jan. 6 insurrectionists then attempted to overturn results of the 2020 presidential election. The turncoat should be on the short list of enemies within who should be voted out of office as soon as possible.
