The democrats sitting on the House floor chanting, recording it for public consumption, and having a Chik Fil A picnic, broke the rules of the chamber. Should they be charged with ethic violations?


Ryan said, “I think what we did is we watched a publicity stunt, a fundraising stunt descend an institution that many of us care a great deal about.” He also said he was worried it would set a bad precedent going forward.

Were the Democrats in clear violation of House rules during the sit in? The answer, according to NBC News, is yes:

House members are violating rules by sharing pictures and video of the sit-in. House rules state that people on the floor may not “use a mobile electronic device that impairs decorum.”.

Whatever action the House may take against them, it should, and do it loudly.

Bring back public stocks.
