    Good. A disgrace to his former profession, and now, hopefully, this is just the start of politicians starting to realize they've been committing political suicide . . .

    Retaliation?

    Actions have consequences.

    Don't vote the way your constituents want you to vote?

    Don't be surprised when you lose the next election.

    Don't vote on a committee the way your party wants you to vote.

    Don't be surprised when the party replaces you with someone else.

    By all means, lead and vote with your conscience, just don't be surprised when others don't agree with you. I get that all the time - that is why I am The Heretic - us heretics get burned at the stake because almost nobody agrees with us and those that do usually don't speak up for fear they will get burned too.

    Just goes to show. We need Constitutionalists to truly represent the people, not Communists and Socialists.
