Jake LaTurner on Government Reform

 

 


Impose term limits on members of Congress

My first official action as Congressman will be to co-sponsor legislation implanting a constitutional amendment imposing term limits on members of Congress. The challenges we face as a nation will not be tackled if politicians are only focused on the next election.

Strongly supports Electoral College, according to AFA survey.

LaTurner opposes the AFA survey question on abolishing the Electoral College

The AFA inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'The Electoral College should be abolished'? Self-description: (American Family Association helps produce iVoterGuides): "Grounded in God; rooted in research"; they "thoroughly investigate candidates"; when they cannot "evaluate with confidence, they receive an 'Insufficient' rating" (& we exclude)

Don't impeach President Trump for events of Jan. 6.

LaTurner voted NAY impeaching President Trump for inciting insurrection

GovTrack.us summary of H.Res.24: Article of Impeachment Against Former President Donald John Trump:

The House impeached President Trump for the second time, charging him with incitement of insurrection. The impeachment resolution accused the President of inciting the violent riot that occurred on January 6, when his supporters invaded the United States Capitol injuring and killing Capitol Police and endangering the safety of members of Congress. It cites statements from President Trump to the rioters such as `if you don't fight like hell you're not going to have a country anymore,` as well as persistent lies that he won the 2020 Presidential election.

Legislative Outcome:

Bill introduced Jan 11, 2021, with 217 co-sponsors; House rollcall vote #117 passed 232-197-4 on Jan. 13th (a YES vote in the House was to impeach President Trump for inciting insurrection); Senate rollcall vote #59 rejected 57-43-0 on Feb. 13th (2/3 required in Senate to pass; a YES vote in the Senate would have found President Trump guilty, but since he had already left office at that time, a guilty verdict would have barred Trump from running for President in the future)
