Iowa House Democratic Leader Wants Republican Punished Over Comments


DES MOINES -- The Iowa Democratic House leader is calling for a Republican to be punished over social media comments..

Minority leader Todd Prichard of Charles City wants Representative Dean Fisher of Montour stripped of his committee assignments over social media comments Fisher made about voter fraud and the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, and for refusing to apologize for those comments.

Fisher said there was cheating in Democratic led states and cities and made a reference to guns in his posts. He wrote, “We will survive. Remember, our side has the guns.”

House Majority leader Pat Grassley has not punished Fisher, and said Prichard was playing partisan politics.
