A group of religious leaders in Missouri is calling for Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) to resign following his contesting of President Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election.
“If you are watching this from somewhere else other than Missouri, we ask you to contact your senator and ask them to have him expelled from the Senate immediately,” the Rev. Cassandra Gould of Missouri Faith Voices said during a press conference last week. “Missouri can’t afford this. Black people can’t afford this. My grandchildren can’t afford this.”
Hawley was the first senator to announce he would join House Republicans in contesting the certification of Biden’s Electoral College victory.
