Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE), a vocal critic of former President Trump, was censored by the Republican Party of Lincoln County, Nebraska, on Sunday. Chairwoman Carol Friesen said the vote on the measure was unanimous.
The decision to reprimand Senator Sasse punished him for "rejecting the legitimate concerns of the Nebraska Secretary of State, the Attorney General and a large majority of Republican voters over allegations of fraud in the November presidential election."
In addition to Lincoln County, Hitchcock, Scotts Bluff, and Sarpy are among the counties of Nebraska that have made similar resolutions.
The Nebraska State Republican Central Committee will meet on Saturday to consider a resolution to criticize.
Sasse had been among a handful of GOP senators protesting the challenge of Sens. Josh Hawley's (R-MO and Ted Cruz (R-TX) voting) going so far as to describe Hawley's actions as "really stupid" .
Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) told @NPRinskeep that Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) 's move to object to the results of the electoral college was "really stupid".

Ben Sasse isn't the first Republican to be criticized by the domestic crowd.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has also been censored by several Republican committees and her state party in her home state of Wyoming for her voice on the indictment of former President Trump.
Bill Cassidy (R-LA), one of six Republican Senators who voted for the impeachment hearing, is also under fire at home for voting for the Senate to constitutionally hear the impeachment proceedings against a former President Trump voted against last week.
Of the 10 House members who voted for impeachment, seven, including Cheney, already have primary challengers.
Could the average American be trying to tell the people who sent them to Washington DC?
There has been much speculation about what Donald Trump might do in his life after the president. Starting a third party was on that list.
In a report by The Hill, a new Hill / HarrisX poll found that 64% of registered Republican voters would join a new political party founded by Donald Trump.
The last Hill HarrisX poll was conducted online among 340 registered voters. The error rate is +/- 5.3 percentage points.

A look out of the swamp
There are many people both left and right who are quick to speak out about things Donald Trump did as President.
"He lied, he caused a riot" and so on and so forth.
Whether you agree with these allegations is not the point. What he's done, which even more people don't like, is that he revealed the system that really is in Washington D.C. exists.
And the people who don't like it are exactly the same people Americans sent to represent them in the nation's capital, both Democrats and Republicans.
Let's call it the old guard, let's call it the establishment, whatever it is, it's a group that not only seems to be aligned with one another regardless of the party but also aligned against the average American.

Do Americans Wake Up?
Donald Trump exposed Democrats and Republicans as one and the same, as a "university party". We send them to Washington, they go into the house or the Senate and pretend to argue, then they all go out for a drink.
What is missing? Carry out the will of their constituents.
More and more Americans from all political backgrounds are seeing a clear division between the types Ben Sasse, Liz Cheney and Mitt Romney, who like to tell us how wrong we are in supporting an ogre like Donald Trump.
After all, they know better and are less and less afraid to convey this.
We knew long ago that our representatives no longer go to Washington to cast votes for us, the people. You cast votes for yourself.
Liz Cheney recently said in a recent appearance on Fox News Sunday that Donald Trump "will not play a role as leader of our party".
Newsflash Rep. Cheney: You can't decide that.
Ben Sasse posted a video addressing his Nebraska Republicans. In it he said: "Personality cults are not conservative, conspiracy theories are not conservative. The lie that an election was stolen is not conservative. Acting like politics is a religion, is not conservative."
It is not conservative to give people a litmus test of what is conservative.
