Illinois Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger has claimed that while his child will be proud of his last name, other lawmakers’ children will be “ashamed” of their parents.
“I regret nothing. And I know, my child, I know that, he’ll be proud to have the last name. And many of my colleagues will have children who will be ashamed of them,” Kinzinger said loudly NBC News.
Kinzinger is one of two Republicans who served on the Committee of Representatives investigating the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot – Liz Cheney of Wyoming is the other GOP member who served on the committee.
“It’s not that we’re brave. We really aren’t,” Kinzinger said of himself and Cheney, according to NBC News. “It’s that cowardice is everywhere.”
Cheney and Kinzinger were among the 10 Republicans in the House of Representatives tuned for an impeachment trial against then-President Donald Trump following last year’s Capitol riots.
Both lawmakers will leave Congress in early 2023.
Cheney who has served in the House of Representatives since 2017, earlier this year lost the 2022 GOP primary to Trump-backed candidate Harriet Hageman, who went on to win the general election.
Earlier this month, Kinzinger expressed support for former House Speaker John Boehner, a Republican, who choked while making a remark honoring outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat. Boehner, in an apparent reference to his daughters, said his “girls” told him to tell Pelosi how much they admire her.
“John Boehner is a class. Be more like Boehner”, Kinzginer tweeted.
