Senator Censured By GOP Over Same-Sex Marriage Vote

  • A group of Indiana Republicans drafted a censure letter and sent it to Sen. Todd Young (R-IN) after he voted in favor of passing a bill that would codify same-sex marriage into federal law.
  • Although a censure does not remove a senator from office, the letter acts as a statement of disapproval and can affect one’s standing or reputation.
  • “Cass County Republicans felt that waiting until the next election cycle to share how upset they were would not accomplish anything and therefore chose to write this letter of Censure to Sen. Young,” the letter read.
