The Madison County Republican Central Committee voted to censure Sen. Joni Ernst on Monday night due to her vote in support of the (Dis)Respect for Marriage Act. Ernst voted in favor of HR 8404 in direct opposition to the National Republican Platform as well as the Iowa GOP Platform.

The resolution of censure quoted from the Iowa GOP Platform:

“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 noted that Ernst’s vote “directly opposes the expressed will of God, her constituents and the Republican Party of Iowa Platform.”

Other counties that have taken action against Ernst’s vote for the (Dis)Respect for Marriage Act include:

Des Moines
Van Buren
