Ohio GOP censures Republican lawmaker over Trump

The Ohio Republican Party’s central committee voted Friday to censure Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-Ohio) and call for his resignation over his vote to impeach former President Trump for inciting the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.

Ohio GOP Chairman Bob Paduchik told The Hill in a statement that the resolution “addresses an unconstitutional, politically motivated process that served no purpose.”

“Republicans and Democratic members alike have the right to vote in any way they so choose. This committee also has a right to stand on principle and conviction,” Paduchik said.
