House Democrats Might Be In Some Trouble When Congress Gets Back
Sources say House leadership is mulling over some kind of punishment for a sit-in that happened in June.By Eugene Daniels | September 3, 2016
Remember that time Democrats held a sit-in on the floor of the House and wouldn't let Speaker Paul Ryan really get any work done? Well, it looks some type of punishment may be on its way for the disruption.
GOP sources say Ryan and other Republican leaders are looking into ways to punish the Democrats who participated. It's not clear what is going to happen, but it'll likely be some kind of public reprimand or a resolution about how something like this won't be allowed in the future — especially since the Democrats broke chamber rules about having cell phones on the floor to live stream the protest after the House feed was cut.
