Senator Josh Hawley, a Missouri Republican at the forefront of a bid to block congressional certification of the Electoral College vote, is largely to blame for “inspiring one of the most heartbreaking days in modern American history,” his home-state newspaper’s editorial board wrote.
Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) talks with a house member on the floor of the house during a joint session of Congress to certify the 2020 election results on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., January 6, 2021.
Four people died, including a women shot to death, during the pandemonium.
“This revolt is the result, and if you didn’t know this is where we’ve been headed from the start, it’s because you didn’t want to know,” the editorial said, addressing Hawley directly.
“Hawley’s actions in the last week had such impact that he deserves an impressive share of the blame for the blood that’s been shed,” the Star’s board wrote.
