On January 3rd, the day Lizzie Fletcher was sworn into office, her fellow freshman Democrat Rashida Tlaib stated that House Democrats were going impeach the President of the United States. Tlaib’s expletive-laced threat directed at the President was a major step in the Democratic party’s crusade to abolish the results of the 2016 election.
Today, Lizzie Fletcher joined with Tlaib in an effort to make that threat a reality. By voting for impeachment, Fletcher violated her pledge to voters that she would be a moderate and independent voice for the people of the 7th District.
House Democrats like Fletcher, Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have always had the intention of impeaching President Trump, no matter how little evidence they had of an impeachable offense.
They hate the President so much that they cannot focus on anything but impeaching him. Before the Ukraine investigation, it was the Mueller probe, and before that, it was the emoluments clause.
7th District voters elected Fletcher to represent us and fight for the issues that matter most to our district. We elected her to defend our energy jobs, not support fracking bans that target the oil and gas industry. We elected her to pass USMCA to keep our economy strong, not allow it to be sidelined by investigation after investigation. We elected her to be an independent voice, not vote with Nancy Pelosi 100% of the time.
In 2020, we have the opportunity to make a change that protects our energy sector, that will save thousands of jobs and that will provide stability again for our community. Our district deserves a serious representative who is prepared to lead on these issues.
With your help, we can take our district back, build on the tremendous economy we enjoy and safeguard our energy sector for the next generation of Houstonians.
