President Trump (R) continues to challenge the results of the November election, and it seems that those legislators supporting him could face repercussions for calling into question Trump’s defeat. Pam Keith, the Democrat who ran for Florida’s 18th Congressional district but lost to Florida Rep. Brian Mast (R), has filed a petition to disbar Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R) over his continued support of Trump’s legal challenges.

Calling his support an “egregious betrayal and attack on the Constitution of the United States of America,” Keith informer her Twitter followers that “whether or not they choose to discipline him (they have censured him in the past), the record of his tenure will have this stain forever.”

In a time when Republicans are facing infighting because of the election results, Rep. Gaetz has remained a staunch supporter of the President’s legal challenges after some Republicans have signaled that they’re ready to move forward with a Biden administration.

The petition filed by Keith further asserts that Gaetz has acted to “tear apart the fabric of federalism that allows this nation to function and thrive.”

So far, the petition has received over 3,305 signatures, and Keith has also hinted that she would also file a petition to disbar Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi (R).

In response to the petition, Rep. Gaetz questioned on Twitter, “how many times have you run? How many wins? (The voters just aren’t that into you…).

Gaetz or his office have not provided further comments on the petition, but Keith remains committed to ensuring that Gaetz is disbarred.

Who is Pam Keith?

Keith has run for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives in 3 different elections and has used a different place of residency in all three campaigns.

Keith recently stated that she only answers to those who vote or donate to her campaign.

“As a candidate, I can tell you, we listen to two kinds of people. The people who give us money and the people who give us votes. You don’t give me your vote or your money, I don’t gotta listen to you.”- Pam Keith
