United States Sen. Joni Ernst was formally censured by another county central committee in Iowa on Saturday. The Pocahontas County Central Committee formally censured Ernst without opposition.

The resolution quoted the Iowa Republican Party Platform, Section 13 under Liberty:

“We believe that traditional, two-parent (one male (XY) and one female (XX), marriage-based families are the foundation to a stable, enduring, and healthy civilization. We encourage the repeal of any laws allowing any marriage that is not between one natural man and one natural woman.”

It also added:

“There is nothing more foundational to our society than marriage as instituted by God between one biological man and one biological woman. Sen. Ernst directly opposes the expressed will of God and of her constituents and is hereby formally censured for her vote by the Pocahontas County Central Committee.”

Ernst was one of 12 Republicans in the U.S. Senate who supported the (Dis)Respect for Marriage Act.

Representatives Ashley Hinson and Mariannette Miller-Meeks voted for it in the House prior to its passage in the Senate. Representative-elect Zach Nunn said he would’ve supported the bill as well.

The bill returns to the House after being amended in the Senate. If no significant changes are made in the House, it will move to President Joe Biden’s desk.

The censure from Pocahontas follows Mahaska County Central Committee’s decision to also censure Ernst.

  1. Ernst is a big disappointment for many reasons. We need a strong conservative with a great publicity campaign to to primary her ass OUT!
