Griffith Supports Lawsuit to Halt Unconstitutional Proxy Voting Scheme in House of Representatives

Tuesday, May 26, 2020 | Kevin Baird (202-225-3861)

Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement regarding the planned lawsuit against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to prevent the U.S. House of Representatives from implementing an unconstitutional proxy voting plan:

“The proxy voting plan passed by House Democrats allows members not physically present to cast votes, clearly disregarding the Constitution’s requirement of a quorum physically present in the House of Representatives to do business. Since the House majority will not stand up for the Constitution, it is appropriate to ask the courts to step in.”
