"I come from Florida, where you and others participated in what I call the United States coup d'etat. We need to make sure it doesn't happen again," Brown said. "Over and over again after the election when you stole the election, you came back here and said, 'Get over it.' No, we're not going to get over it. And we want verification from the world." At that point, Buyer demanded that Brown's words be "taken down," or removed the debate's permanent record. The House's presiding officer, Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, ruled that Brown's words violated a House rule. "Members should not accuse other members of committing a crime such as, quote, stealing, end quote, an election," Thornberry said. When Brown objected to his ruling, the House voted 219-187 to strike her words.
At least someone in congress will admit the truth. I think it is ridiculous that her words were removed from the record. People just dont want to talk about it. Big surprise here, the person that ruled her words violated a house rule is a Repulican from Texas. :mfinger: Mac Thornberry
