This is your insurrection, Louie Gohmert

The Lincoln Project agrees: time to get Gohmert gone. , The good folks at the Lincoln Project are at it again. They just released a video placing the blame for the violent insurrection at the Capitol squarely where it belongs: on Louie Gohmert’s shoulders. For years, Louie Gohmert ha…

You can’t fix stupid...

Louie Gohmert, the Kiev Chicken

Let’s get Gohmert gone. , Louie Gohmert has some explaining to do. You've probably seen our TV ad that talks about Louie Gohmert visiting Ukraine. But the big question here is WHY did he go visit Ukraine? We’ve got a rundown of the facts: FIRST: In 2018, Louie’s pals on Capitol Hill befr…

Don’t miss your chance to be a part of our Retire Louie Fund.

How badly do you want to see Louie gone? , Louie Gohmert is a lot of things: ✅ He’s a white supremacist sympathizer. ✅ He’s a kook who believes that a mysterious mist from Germany is the cure to coronavirus. ✅ He’s a 67-year-old man-baby who throws temper tantrums that would put a crank…

Ukraine Louie

This is our last chance to keep this ad running. , One thing you learn when you run for office: TV ads aren’t cheap. Our Ukraine Louie ad is our most popular one yet, but unless we can raise some more money and do it fast, we’re going to have to pull it off the air. These ads help us re…

This is what you get from a congressman who won’t denounce white supremacists

This is do or die, y’all. , On the House floor today, Louie Gohmert decided to re-write American history. You and I both know that the southern states didn’t secede from the Union for any reason other than the preservation of slavery. Yet, on the hallowed floor of one of our nation’s o…
