I don't agree with some Republicans' decision to split with the rest of the party and prevent a new speaker of the House from ascending to the role, but that doesn't mean they didn't have the right to do it.
Even if you don't agree with Republican Nebraska Rep. Don Bacon's decision to oppose Jim Jordan for speaker of the House, you have to understand that congressional rules fully allow him to do so.
Anyone trying to take action against Bacon for the way he votes will be the one in the wrong, not Don Bacon himself.
That's why even though I don't agree with Bacon, I do not think that he and his family should be subjected to threats and intimidation.
Bacon alleges that his wife was sent several menacing texts following the vote from an unknown number.
"Talk to your husband tell him to step up be a leader and help the Republican Party get a speaker there's too much going on in the world for all this going on in Republican Party you guys take five steps forward and then turn around and take 20 steps backwards no wonder our party always ends up getting screwed over," said one of the text messages.
It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
