Grassroots activists from the districts of seven California Republican Congressmen who last week objected to the certification of the Presidential elections results called for their expulsion for seeking to “erase the votes” of people of color which they said were “the result of organizing and not fraud.”

The activists called for severe consequences for the group whom they called “the seditious seven” from California: Rep. Devin Nunes (Central Valley), Rep. Jay Obernolte (Central Valley), Rep. Ken Calvert (Inland Empire), Rep. Darrell Issa (San Diego), Rep. Mike Garcia (Los Angeles), Rep. Doug LaMalfa (Far North California) and Rep. Kevin McCarthy: (Central Valley).

Irene Kao, executive director of Courage California, a progressive online activism network, said that even though President Trump has been impeached and suffered politically “punishing him won´t be enough when these congressmen still have two years in office to continue pushing the insurrection he started.”
