‘The Stupidest Vote in the World’

Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) was overheard in an elevator on Capitol Hill calling the vote to remove Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from the Foreign Affairs Committee the “stupidest vote in the world,” the Daily Beast reports.

Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID), who was reportedly next to him in the elevator, agreed and added that the action could make Omar a “martyr.”

It’s worth noting that both Buck and Simpson voted in favor anyway.
