House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) both said Friday that Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-Neb.) should resign from Congress in light of his being convicted on three felony charges connected to his statements to the FBI about illegal campaign contributions.

“He had his day in court. I think if he wants to appeal, he can go do that as a private citizen,” McCarthy said in a press conference Friday from House Republicans’ annual policy retreat in Florida.

McCarthy said he texted Fortenberry on Thursday night and plans to talk to him today.

I agree, he should resign and I’m glad Pelosi and McCarthy are in alignment on this.

Crime ain't the problem, obviously. But getting held accoutable is unacceptable.

So McCarthy is still a snake. Not surprising.

No. I’m against McCarthy. Have been for years.
McCarthy is a spineless fool, but this time he is right, Fortenberry is corrupt and has to go.
