Hern calls on Cheney to resign from GOP leadership position
Tulsa, OK , May 7, 2021 | Miranda Dabney
Representative Kevin Hern (OK-01) released the following statement calling for Congresswoman Liz Cheney (WY-AL) to step down from her elected position as Chair of the House Republican Conference.
“Throughout my years in business, I have seen both good and bad examples of leadership,” said Rep. Hern. “While everyone has their own styles and methods, one thing is constant: a good leader must be willing to go to bat for all they lead – even if it means personal sacrifice. Congresswoman Cheney has made it clear that she will put her own interests over those of whom she was elected to lead as Conference Chair. In the press, Cheney has proven that her self-interests outweigh the interest of the conference and the interest of the people we represent. This failure of leadership leaves me no choice but to call for her resignation. If she does not resign, I will vote to remove her from her leadership position.”
