Center for American Progress Policy Analyst Ian Millhiser was on Capitol Hill today and noticed that Rep. Jeff Miller (R-FL) is proudly hanging a sign in support of Rep. Joe “You Lie!” Wilson (R-SC):
Several Republican lawmakers have been rushing to stand by Wilson, including Reps. Steve King (IA) — who defended Wilson’s support for the Confederate flag — and Michele Bachmann (MN) — who thanked God for Wilson.
Moments ago, the House voted 240–179 to formally rebuke Wilson for his outburst during Obama’s speech to Congress. Twelve Democrats voted no, while 7 Republicans voted yes. 5 Democrats voted present, and 10 members didn’t vote.
